Open science and open scholarship (in Europe and the rest of the world). No way back
Ciclo de Webinars sobre Ciencia Abierta 2020
(This webinar will be in English)
Covid 19 has given a decisive push for Open Science as modus operandi for science in the 21st century. It showed the benefits of open data and access and global collaborative networks. Since several years, Europe has drawn the card of Open Science and will continue to do so in the future whilst at the same time making sure its ‘’digital sovereignty’’ gets protected.
This webinar presents the policy framework and the main components of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). It points the way for the integration and consolidation of e-infrastructures at national, regional and institutional public research infrastructures across Europe. Similar open science cloud initiatives were taken in other regions in the world. What is in it for Latin America and the Caribbean?
