Open Research Forum
Join the University’s Open Research Champions to learn about and discuss Open Research. All members of the University are welcome to attend. Visit the event page for details and booking.
We have two excellent talks lined up for our September meeting:
Organising ourselves for world domination: how junior academics can work together to improve research culture (Jess Butler, Senior Research Fellow at Centre for Health Data Science, University of Aberdeen)
We are delighted to welcome Jess Butler, who will discuss how funders and grassroots organisations are seeking to change research culture, and how early career researchers can be empowered to promote change in their own universities. Jess is a passionate advocate for research improvement and an inspiring communicator.
The UNESCO Open Science Recommendation, Open Research and ethics (Marzia Briel, PhD student, School of Law)
Open Research Champion Marzia Briel will discuss the UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science (in draft). The Recommendation defines shared values and principles for Open Science, and identifies measures on Open Access and Open Data, with proposals to bring citizens closer to science and commitments to facilitate the production and dissemination of scientific knowledge around the world. Marzia will bring her expertise in research ethics and the law to bear on discussion of this important legal instrument.
