    Event: Building Consistency for Open Science in Europe: Rhetoric and Practice
    Title: Can Open Science be the default option? An experience from a multidisciplinary university
    Abstract: Open Science is becoming a priority for funders and policy makers to support practices aimed at increasing the societal impact of research activities and outcomes. Universities can not just wait and see how these practices are being implemented, they need to play an active role. They need to transform themselves, to create new profiles, new services, new infrastructures and to make a cultural change at all levels. In this talk I would like to share what we have done, and we are still doing, at the University of Barcelona for making Open Science the default option but also how we are trying to lead the change. We don't want just to change because funders and policy makers are asking us but because we believe science needs to be open by default.

    Is My University Ready For the Open Science Challenges?

    Open science has become a buzzword in the academic environment but it has many meanings and it brings a lot of challenges to the university that wants to deal with it. The complexity of the multiple faces of open science requires having an institutional plan or roadmap to tackle it and to try to succeed. On one hand, funders and national bodies are advocating for open science to bring research closer to citizens without restrictions; and on the other hand, a new generation of researchers is expecting broad institutional support for their new practices. We will share what has been done at the University of Barcelona and the experiences we have gained, hoping they could serve any other university in the same situation.

    Facing the Open Science challenges from a university perspective

    When we talk about Open Science we talk about new ways of performing research and disseminating results. Many researchers are embracing this new way of doing research, sometimes fostered by funders, and universities must act. Open Science brings challenges and opportunities that must be evaluated from a university perspective in order to make changes in the way they provide services and infrastructures for researches. And, moreover, Open Science implies new ways of evaluating research, internally and externally. Universities must develop their own strategy for Open Science and an action plan to implement it. In this talk, I will introduce some ideas on how to develop it.

    Fostering the Open Science Agenda from the Library

    Open Science is a new way of performing research and disseminating its results that many researches are embracing. Some universities have started to create an agenda to acknowledge, support and reward this new attitudes and libraries can play a key role in its development. Looking at some of the initiatives that are set in some European universities we can learn how to build our own approach to Open Science from an institutional point of view and especially from the library. Open Science brings many challenges and opportunities and we must be ready for them.

    Paving the Way for Adopting FAIR Data in a University

    Researchers are being aware of the need to share their research data but there is still a lot of misinformation about how to do it. Universities should provide information, training, infrastructure and services to make it possible. It is not just a question of posting some spreadsheets in a repository it goes far beyond. The FAIR principles set some criteria that can be followed by researchers and institutions to reach the ultimate goal: to have research data publicly available to be reused by others to reproduce results and to build upon them.
