Open Science: Innovations, Challenges and Projections for the Future based on an Inter-regional Dialogue
OBREAL Global and the EU-LAC Foundation are organising two webinars on 6 and 7 April 2022 and a panel at the third UNESCO World Higher Education Conference (WHEC 2022) in Barcelona from 18-20 May 2022 on Open Science: Innovations, Challenges and Projections for the Future based on an Inter-Regional Dialogue.
Open science has risen to the top of the international scientific agenda because of its relevance for research and equal access to knowledge and scientific production. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Directors-General of UNESCO, the World Health Organisation, and the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights issued a call for open, inclusive, and collaborative science. However, dialogues and cooperation on open science between the EU and LAC, and between them and other regions of the world, have been scarce, so it can be assumed that the facilitation of spaces for such exchanges could unleash synergies and innovations in this area. In this context, the EU-LAC Foundation and OBREAL Global are organising these two events.
