This workshop seeks to bring together policymakers, funders, researchers, and other supporters of open science to discuss the opportunities and challenges for international cooperation in open science and related paradigms. The workshop will begin with keynote speeches and panels reporting on what has already been accomplished in the EU and US, and sharing goals as well as concrete plans for future work. Workshop attendees will also discuss opportunities for enhanced international cooperation in open science, including potential partnerships between stakeholders in the EU and US. Topics will include:
- How to enhance open access, including through open publishing and open data.
- Alternative or next generation metrics for evaluating the impacts of open science policies and/or activities.
- The relationship between different open science initiatives, such as open hardware, citizen science, and open data.
- Effective policy levers for supporting and advancing open science.
- Infrastructure for supporting and advancing open science, including the European Open Science Cloud and projects in the US like Data.gov.
The workshop would be co-hosted by the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, as supported by the BILAT 4.0 project, and the European Commission, through the Directorate General for Research and Innovation (DG RTD) and the Open Science Policy Platform (OSPP).
