Open Science goes beyond open access to publication, encompassing the sharing of open research data and citizen science. It also paves the way for the development of appropriate metrics, incentives and rewards. Since Open Science solutions have to be developed in a coherent way both at national and European level, this conference combines a discussion of the Belgian Open Science policies with debates relating to a H2020 Policy Support Facility Mutual Learning Exercise on Open Science with a prominent European outlook. Special emphasis is put on researchers working in an Open Science environment, skilling, incentivising and rewarding them.
People interested in knowing more on the situation of Open Science in Belgium; on the EC's policies and Open Science in Europe; on Alternative Metrics for Open Science; and on the way forward for Open Science implementation.Agenda is available at https://ec.europa.eu/research/openscience/index.cfm?pg=events&eventcode=67A0F327-DD21-CD2D-F8347DDB5F261A60
