The Value of Open Science

Event information

Date & location

From 2:00pm to 3:00pm CET


Una Europa team at Uniwersytet Jagielloński w Krakowie

Why engage in Open Science practices? Are they valuable or do they constitute an unnecessary administrative burden? Does Open Science make better researchers? Does it increase the quality of research? How does it benefit the public? How should universities and research institutions implement Open Science?

Join us on 20 July to debate these questions and more in an online panel discussion exploring Open Science.

During the debate, panelists will explore Open Science as a key value which informs rational scientific inquiry, sharing their thoughts on how Open Science is best understood and how to implement it for the benefit of the public, research institutions, and researchers themselves.

Meet our panellists

The debate will be moderated by Jake Broadhurst who will speak to a panel of Open Science experts:

  • Dr Yaw Aniweh, University of Ghana
  • Dr Katarzyna Jaśko, Uniwersytet Jagielloński w Krakowie
  • Dr Mª Angeles Blanco Suárez, Universidad Complutense de Madrid

About the event

The debate will be based on the Future UniLab Concept Note, Open Science as a Value which was developed as part of the activities in Open Science under Una.Resin, Una Europa's flagship R&I project funded under Horizon 2020. The Concept Note outlines the understanding and ramifications of Open Science in the context of the Una Europa partner universities and was developed by a writing team appointed by the Una Europa Future UniLab, the alliance's protected space for innovative thinking about the University of the Future. The Concept Note provides the basis for this panel discussion with the aim of providing a space for the Una Europa community to engage with and interrogate key concepts around Open Science and co-develop the alliance's work in this area.

This event was initiated as part of the activities in Open Science under the Una.Resin project.
