Open Science by Design: Practical Commitments for Implementation by (Young) Universities
New Indicators -- FAIR Data -- Citizen Science
A CHAPTER (17TH) OF FOCUS ON OPEN SCIENCE
An event organised on July 8h 2019 by:
Scientific Knowledge Services, University Carlos III de Madrid and in collaboration with UCL Press, LIBER (Association of European Research Libraries) and YERUN.
About 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 Workshops
Started in 2015, we aim through these workshops to address the challenges posed by Open Science, using the 8 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.”
The workshops are taking place all across Europe.
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.
Open Science by Design in Madrid
The Madrid workshop will put in correlation 3 of the 8 challenges of EU Open Science: New indicators and reward system – FAIR Data – and Citizen Science. We will analyse and discuss these important topics with the aim of getting PCIs (Practical Commitments for Implementations) of Open Science, particularly for Universities and Research Performing Organisations. The workshop will include the participation of Early Career Researchers.
How are the Universities going to implement new career assessment methods for Open Science? What are the needed infrastructures and skills for FAIR data? How are we going to include citizens in the scientific landscape for public engagement? Are the data produced by citizen science FAIR? How are going to be rewarded FAIR data practices?
The language of the Workshop is English.
