Swiss Open Science Action Plan Kick-Off Forum

The open science working group initiated by swissuniversities in 2019 aims to broaden the open access strategy and its action plan to include additional components, which are also part of Open Science. This requires direct and close cooperation with all stakeholders, and in par-ticular with the scientific community. To promote the exchange and to gather fresh, inspiring and visionary ideas, swissuniversities invites you to the Kick-Off Forum of the Swiss Open Science Action Plan 2021-2024.

This event will take place at the Forum Rolex of EPFL on Thursday October 17th, one day ahead of the Open Science Day, an event that is part of the EPFL 50th anniversary celebrations.

Attendees

Every member of the Swiss scientific community interested in suggesting project ideas in the context of Open Science services and / or infrastructures that would ideally im-plement the Open Science National Strategy. Please note that the Swiss Open Science Strategy also aims at including Open Innovation, Citizen Science and Open Education initiatives.

Call for Ideas

We welcome the submission of posters and videos (2 minutes maximum) high-lighting your ideas and inspiring visions regarding open and reproducible science in Switzerland.

  • How do you envision the concrete implementation of open science in the next 5, 10 or 15 years in your field?
  • What will be your added value and contribution to this field?
  • Why do you think your idea is relevant not only for your community, but also for the scientific community in Switzerland?

Feeling inspired?
