DRI co-hosts Open Science and Ireland

DRI, under the aegis of the ALLEA e-Humanities Working Group and the Royal Irish Academy (RIA), is co-organising a two-day Open Science event with The Health Research Board (HRB).

Open Science aims to transform science by making research more open, global, collaborative, creative and closer to society.

The immediate impetus for this event is the invited visit of Professor Barend Mons, Chair of the High Level Expert Group (HLEG) of the European Open Science Cloud Initiative (EOSC). The HLEG provides strategic advice to the EU Commission on research data sharing, data stewardship and data reuse in the context of the implementation of the EOSC, as part of the EU Commission Digital Single Market Strategy.

The first day (Monday 27 June 2016) will be policy focused and will bring together leading players in Ireland to discuss our Open Science policies and practices and to consider how to develop the Open Science agenda  in Ireland.  

The second day (Tuesday 28 June 2016) will focus on research data governance and good practice, and is targeted at researchers and institutions’ research support personnel.

Please note that with different target audiences, there is a separate registration process (and link/url) for each day.
