What is the Conference about

Science Europe is organising a conference on Open Science. The event will bring together institutional leaders, researchers at all stages of their careers, and experts from the field to discuss two main questions:

  • Is Open Science ready to become the norm in research?
  • How do we ensure an equitable transition to Open Science?

How to attend

The Open Science Conference will be held on 18 and 19 October 2022 and broadcasted as a hybrid event live from Brussels. Participants are invited to join the plenary and breakout sessions online. Connection details will be shared with registrants closer to the event.

What will be discussed

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the value of open and collaborative research, and several recent publications have driven the implementation of Open Science policies and the need to discuss shared values, principles, and standards. These include the final report of the Open Science Policy Platform (2020) and UNESCO’s ‘Recommendation on Open Science’ (2021).

The Conference will provide a comprehensive overview of the current policy initiatives, research assessment reforms, and financial measures that support the transition to Open Science, and look forward to new trends. Participants are invited to discuss the many facets related to the transition in a highly interactive event.

Topics include:

  • Open Science and society, including equity
  • Open Access to all types of research outputs
  • Evolving research assessment and evaluation practices
  • Access to and use of open research infrastructures
  • Open Science policies

The goal is to bring clarity to an increasingly complex transition and the sprawling number of interlinked initiatives that affect the future of the research and innovation landscape. The conference will be one of the first to establish and explore equity as a key consideration in its own right when discussing Open Science.
