Science Europe Open Science Conference 2022

Conference

Science Europe invites institutional leaders, researchers at all stages of their career, and experts from the field to join its 18 and 19 October 2022 conference on Open Science to discuss two key questions:

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

To find answers to these questions, the conference will provide a comprehensive overview of practical and policy initiatives, research assessment reforms, and financial measures that support the transition to Open Science. We will also look forward at new and emerging trends.

Goals of the conference

Participants are invited to discuss the many facets related to the transition in a highly interactive event. We will specifically cover:

  • 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

Science Europe organises this conference at an important time for Open Science. The COVID-19 pandemic 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). Earlier in 2022, the Open Science Conference organised under the French Presidency of the Council of the EU, took stock of the links between various aspects of Open Science.

Science Europe aims to bring clarity to an increasingly complex transition and sprawling number of interlinked initiatives that affect the future of the research and innovation landscape. The plenary sessions will focus on strategy and direction, and set the stage for practical, actionoriented breakout discussions. The conference will be one of the first to establish and exploreequity as a key consideration in its own right when discussing Open Science.
