“The road towards a radically open science”

Global society is rapidly changing. Scientists cannot simply
keep doing science as we’ve always done. To stay relevant, we need to
change every aspect of our research: planning our research through
co-creation with the broader society; conducting our research in a fully
transparent, inclusive and collaborative way; openly communicating our
research to peers and the broader public; and getting recognised and
rewarded in an unbiased way. Society rightly demands radically open
science. The tools and ideas for this radically open science are in
place, now it’s up to us as a scientific community to embrace them. But
where can we expect the roadblocks and the pitfalls on this road to a
radically open science? And how do we circumvent them? Who are our
allies and who can we expect to hold us back? In this presentation, I
will try to sketch the landscape of open science, so that we can better
map the road ahead.
