“On 5 May, 14:00-15:30 London time (UTC+1) (in your timezone): the next Fireside Chat will take place on “Implementing open science at scale”.
Facilitated by Chelle Gentemann, Programme Scientist for NASA’s Transform to OPen Science (TOPS) mission with The Turing Way co-lead Malvika Sharan, this panel will feature insights from Ana Persic (UNESCO Open Science), Nokuthula Mchunu (National Research Foundation, Africa Open Science Platform), Steve Crawford (NASA) and Alex Mendonça (SciELO Brasil). These individuals and community leaders represent different open science efforts addressing the challenges and implementation of open science in Brazil, Africa, the USA and more broadly through cross-country collaborations (read their bios below).
Recommendations, infrastructures, expert services, policies, government buy-in, grassroots advocacies or combinations of several of these — what has worked in different geographical contexts? Highlighting these initiatives led and facilitated by our speakers, we will discuss the convening role of UNESCO, 25 years of SciELO’s open access efforts, 5 years of pan African Open Science Platform and the 2023 NASA’s ‘Year of Open Science’ to drive the implementation of open science at various scales.
We will also facilitate open discussions with attendees to learn about their perspectives on the topic via a shared document (links shared upon registration).
This event is being co-hosted by The Turing Way – a community-led handbook on data science and research and TOPS – part of NASA’s Open-Source Science Initiative designed to rapidly transform agencies, organizations, and communities to an inclusive culture of open science….”
