    All Sessions by Ben McLeish

    Chapter V: Barcelona 06-20-2018
    11:35 - 11:55

    Sponsor Talk: From silos to connected research insights: opportunities and challenges for the scholarly community

    The research landscape exists in silos, often split by proprietary tools and databases that do not meet the needs of the institutions they were created for. What if we could change that? In this session we’ll discuss how connected and more openly available data now can empower institutions to more easily gather the insights they need to inform the most effective development of their organization’s activities and look at how linking different sections of the scholarly ecosystem (including grants, publications, patents and data) would deliver powerful results that can then be integrated into existing systems and workflows through the use of APIs and other applications.
