Program:

Across government, academia, the community sector and industry, the production, use and management of publicly funded research and information is in crisis – both in Australia and around the world. Determined efforts are underway in many sectors but often occur in isolation from other campaigns and without a sense of the wider system. Held during International Open Access week, the second APO Forum will respond to the OA week call to 'Design the equitable foundations for open knowledge'.

This one day forum will focus on understanding the issues affecting research publishing and use in public policy, practice and industry, and look at how we can change aspects of the system to ensure public knowledge is F.A.I.R. (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) now and into the future.

The discussion will cover:

  • The challenges and opportunities for research engagement and impact, knowledge mobilisation, equity and access, open government

  • Innovative publishing and social data platforms

  • The potential and dangers of new technologies and automated decision-making

  • Business models and strategies for reinventing and supporting the public value of knowledge

  • Dr Howard White – CEO, Campbell Collaboration (APO Forum keynote speaker)
  • Assoc. Prof Catherine Althaus – Associate Dean (Academic), Australian and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG)
  • Dr Amir Aryani – Head of Social Data Analytics Lab, Social Innovation Research Institute, Swinburne University of Technology
  • Dr Ginny Barbour – Director, Australasian Open Access Strategy Group (AOASG), Queensland University of Technology (QUT)
