The “Open Science – From Policy to Practice” conference will take place in Stockholm on 16-17 May and will highlight different perspectives of shaping, implementing and embedding Open Science.

The aim of the event is to exchange knowledge, share best practices and to discuss how Open Science can contribute to strengthening sustainable futures and democracies in and beyond the European Union. The conference will be streamed to facilitate online participation.

Access to and sharing of research results and data. The understanding of, and engagement in research. Direct involvement of stakeholders and citizens in the research process. All these aspects are key to implementing Open Science. At the same time, a better understanding of the various dimensions and implications of Open Science is needed, among policy makers as well as practitioners. The importance of collaborations between researchers, and the involvement of other societal actors to improve research, understanding and trust, is increasingly being emphasised, at national, European and global level.

16 May: Implementing Open Science – from policy to national level
