Speaker: Alea López de San Román – Policy Officer, Unit Open Science, Directorate General for Research and Innovation, European Commission
Target audience: open to the R&I community (Researchers, Research managers, Librarians, etc.)
Open science is a policy priority for the European Commission and the standard approach to academic research under the new Framework Programme Horizon Europe, as it improves the quality, efficiency and responsiveness of research.
When researchers share knowledge and data as early as possible in the research process with all relevant actors it helps diffuse the latest knowledge. And when partners from across academia, industry, public authorities and citizen groups are invited to participate in the research and innovation process, creativity and trust in science increases.
What novelties can we find in Horizon Europe regarding Open Science? What new practices evaluators will look for in their evaluation? What rules and obligations are set in the new model agreement?
Alea López, from the Open Science unit of the European Commission, will discuss these and other issues, particularly relevant to all researchers and research managers aiming to submit and manage projects under Horizon Europe.
