Frankfurt Conference: Academic & Scholarly - Open Science and the Management of a Cultural Change
Marking the debut of the Frankfurt Conference, the Academic and Scholarly session is dedicated to the transformation of the academic and research communication. Marking and disseminating for hundreds of years the research output, this form of communication became essential for educating generations of curious minds and for building trustful conversations which led to discoveries. Academic and scholarly communication is now seen as a fertile ground to share and help more elements of the research cycle, among which the data sets, software, ethics and more. Open Science, strongly supported by universities, research funders and many publishers is a model which promises more transparency and interoperability to accelerate the new discoveries. It also shows a way to increase the collaborations between scientists and the broader society. A reputable number of speakers from universities, libraries and publishing houses will illustrate through real-life examples of how this transformation is made and what changes are expected for matching the expectations of researchers: a healthier, trustworthiness and diverse research environment. This session will combine a series of presentations with a live Panel discussion where the audience is expected to interact with the speakers. Please join us for a merry conversation!
