Pushing Open Science Forward: Co-Creating New Ways to Unleash the Inclusiveness and Democratic Potential of Open Science

15:10 - 16:30
Room 206, Shaw Centre

Open science aims to transform the practice and products of science to a more open and inclusive process that can empower citizens. By making methods, data and publications open and accessible to all, science can become more equitable and can contribute to a more democratic governance. For that potential to be realized, the focus of open science must shift from merely a benefit to the speed and competitiveness of science, and instead strive to involve participation from a diverse set of actors. The workshop’s goal is to bring together perspectives from scientists in academia and government from global North and South to generate tangible recommendations for governments on the creation of truly open and equitable science. The session will be a hack-a-thon style event and will produce a visual communication tool that can be shared widely.
