OpenUP high-level expert workshop

28 June 2018, Brussels

OpenUP’s objective is to analyse innovative methods, practices and policies related to peer review and research dissemination and assessment. The project is part of a broader portfolio of Horizon 2020 projects which contribute to open access and open science policies at EU and national levels. As a key activity of the project we are hosting a high-level expert workshop involving MEPs, Commission officials, national policymakers, community leaders, as well as selected service providers, researchers and publishers. The workshop aims to contribute to the ongoing policy developments and discussions on the future research framework programme and its OS policy. The invited participants are high level experts, policy makers, publishers, funders and other key stakeholders in the area of scholarly dissemination.

Keynote speakers:

  • Jean Claude Burgelman (Head of Unit, Directorate General for Research and Innovation, European Commission)
  • Julia Reda (Member of the European Parliament and Vice-Chair of the Greens, European Free Alliance)
  • Professor Jean-Pierre Finance (Chair of the Science 2.0/Open Science Experts Group and a member of the Research Policy Working Group at the European University Association)
