L’événement sera entièrement en anglais. Il se tiendra en ligne le 16 décembre de 14h à 16h30. Une salle de networking sera ouverte de 13h à 14h.

Open 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 more transparent and collaborative approaches. Open Science has the potential to transform the research landscape. This potential has been successfully tested – if only that – during pandemic times.

Open Science started as a vision, aiming to address matters like research reproducibility and access to the results of publicly-funded research. The vision was generally welcome by academic and research institutions and benefited from a great advocacy movement. It’s high time now to build on practice and effective management.

It is generally accepted in Europe that research should be as open as possible and as close as necessary. Finding the borderline between the two is one of the most important tasks for practitioners, whether they belong to funders, research organisations, their partners or researchers themselves.

Yet, this borderline is not sufficiently explored. Guidelines based on feedback and learning from practice should be created, rather sooner than later.

This innovative approach to research has further potential: to address existing inequalities and matters like inclusivity, ethics, better assessment or the missing links between science and society or to re-shape public-private partnerships.

Emphasizing research practices, we will discuss the role of research organisations to support this transition, both acting local and internationally.

The results of the workshops will be captured in a formal report. The report is intended to be used by all involved partners, to advance the implementation of Open Science in their communities and their own institutions.

The Workshop format offers both on-the-spot interactions and follow-up opportunities.

Open Science – the role of the UCL Office for Open Science & Scholarship

This presentation looks at the progress of Open Science In UCL (University College London). UCL is a research-intensive university with an acknowledged reputation for outstanding research. In the middle of the covid-19 pandemic, UCL issued a statement on the importance of Open Science in the ‘new normal’ of the global research landscape. It is in this context that the UCL Office for Open Science was opened, built around the 8 pillars of Open Science as recognized by the European Commission. The presentation identifies the key role of the Office in Leadership, Advocacy and Engagement. It then looks at how work in each of the 8 areas of Open Science has become embedded into the UCL landscape, working both with existing teams and creating new teams. The presentation ends by describing the work ongoing in each of these 8 areas to deliver Open Science principles, policy and practice.
