Is Open Access the first step towards Open Science, Open Research and Open Knowledge? What's even meant by those terms, and what's involved? This module will look at key aspects of the Open Science movement—Open Data, Open Education and Open Interoperability—and how they apply more universally.


Open Science: Beyond Open Access Is Collaboration Enough? Open Science: Beyond Open Access

Collaboration can be a major driver for success. When data is shared among researchers, analysts and stakeholders, the opportunities for innovation and development increase exponentially, particularly in the medical and science fields. To be most effective, the Open Science framework demands more than simply sharing data–it requires dedication, transparency and responsible publishing.

Join this webcast to learn from our panel of experts as they discuss the challenges and benefits of Open Science in the context of global health and medical concerns. They will explain how the disruptive concept of Open Data can reshape and improve the nature of research and results.
