Event description
swissuniversities invites you to the Swiss Open Science Action Plan Kick-Off Forum

About this Event

The open science working group initiated by swissuniversities in 2019 aims to broaden the open access strategy and its action plan in order to put Open Access, Open Data, Open Innovation, Citizen Science and Open Education under the umbrella of Open Science, from 2021 onward. This requires direct and close cooperation with all stakeholders, and in particular 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.

Participants

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 implement the Open Science National Strategy. Please note that the Swiss Open Science strategy will cover Open Access, Open Data, Open Innovation, Citizen Science and Open Education initiatives.

Call for Ideas

We welcome the submission of posters (format A0) and videos (2 minutes maximum) in English, highlighting 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?

Submit the final version of your posters and videos by September 9, 2019 via isci@swissuniversities.ch

The most inspiring and visionary ideas will be presented at the forum and a prize will be awarded to the best selected recipients.
