Focus on Open Science: Budapest

Want to know more about managing the cultural shift towards Open Science? Come to Budapest where Scientific Knowledge Services, in cooperation with in collaboration with the Electronic Information Service National Programme / Library and Information Centre of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and LIBER, are organising a one-day workshop on 15 November 2018.

LIBER will be speaking at the event.

The Challenge of Open Science

Science describes the current transition in how research is undertaken, how the outputs are stored and disseminated, how researchers collaborate, how success is measured and how researchers are rewarded for Open approaches. Open Science has the potential to transform the research landscape. What is the role of academic libraries in supporting this transition? Is there indeed a role for libraries at all? What are the current views and agendas in various European countries? How do we differentiate regionally and nationally?

The Aim of the Focus on Open Science Events

We aim through these workshops to address the challenges posed by Open Science, using the eight pillars of Open Science identified by the European Commission in its Open Science Policy Platform.

The mission statement for the workshops is: Promote the concept of, values and best practices in the Open Science to European communities, with particular reference to libraries.

Why Are These Workshops Important?

We believe that such Workshops offer a practitioner experience, grounded in the principles of Open Science, and opportunities for networking at the local level. The Workshop format offers both on-the-spot interactions and follow-up opportunities. The following topics will be addressed:

  • Open Science and the Management of A Cultural Change
  • The drivers of change: FAIR Data and Open Access
  • Responsible metrics for Open Science
