How to unleash the potential of Research and Innovation through Open Science in the Pacific?
Open Science is a policy priority for many institutions and governments as it enhances the quality, efficiency and responsiveness of research. It is a concept that promotes unhindered access to both scientific publications and data from public research, as well as to collaborative research.
Open practices can accelerate the research process at an unprecedented rate and reinforce values, such as cooperation and knowledge sharing.
In recent years, different countries have started to implement practices to unleash the potential of research and innovation through Open Science.
The benefits and challenges of Open Science in the region will be discussed with policy-makers, researchers and practitioners from the Pacific countries during the workshop.
