4th Open Science FAIR Conference

Conference

Why ?

Open science (also referred to as Open Scholarship or Open Research) is at a crossroads. Implementation and adoption are progressing, with researchers, research institutions, funding agencies, service providers and infrastructures all engaging at various levels. However, different models are emerging which produce a seemingly fragmented ecosystem and achieve small steps on top of traditional scholarly communication system. In order to enable international and interdisciplinary research, we need to ensure interoperability across communities and services while still maintaining our ability to support diversity of workflows and knowledge systems.

Who?

OS FAIR 2023 is organised as an emblematic initiative of OpenAIRE, a not-for-profit organisation to ensure a permanent open scholarly communication infrastructure to support European researc. This year the event will be co-organized with FECYT, from the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation, key European projects and global initiatives.

What?

OS FAIR 2023 aims to bring together and empower open science communities and services; to identify common practices related to open science; to see what are the best synergies to deliver and operate services that work for many; and to bring experiences from all around the world and learn from each other
