Event Description

This event, held to celebrate Open Access Week 2012, features a variety of speakers talking about all aspects of the open access and open data agendas. Open Access Week 2012 takes place at a time when open access is a particularly hot topic, in light of the widely-reported Finch Report on widening access to research outputs, and the recently updated RCUK policy on open access.

The event features a series of speakers, each addressing a separate open access-related topic. Confirmed speakers are as follows:

  • Stephen Curry, Professor of Structural Biology, Imperial College London "Open access after Finch and RCUK" 
  • Fred Friend, Honorary Director Scholarly Communication, UCL (session name TBC)
  • Melissa Terras, Digital Humanities, UCL: "How to use social media to promote open access research"
  • David Carr, Wellcome Trust: "The Wellcome Trust and Open Access: a funder's perspective"
  • Antonio Gasparrini, Lecturer in Biostatistics and Epidemiology, LSHTM: "Open access: a researcher's perspective"

Lunch will be provided from 1pm, with a tea break mid-afternoon. The event will finish at 4.30pm. There will also be time at the end of the event for a general discussion and Q&A session. Tickets are strictly limited to 50, and are expected to be taken fast, so please book early!
