Workshops on Global Progress in Open Science Implementation and ICSTI Annual Conference 2022

1 December 2022
9:00 – 16:30 UTC

Organized by ISC Member, the International Council for Scientific and Technical Information (ICSTI)

Open Science policies and recommendations are rapidly evolving. The pace of change inspires and necessitates constant innovations in the tools, practices, and infrastructures used by organizations managing scientific and technical information (STI) to support the Open Science movement and comply with Open Science policy requirements. ICSTI’s 2022 Annual Conference will therefore focus on global progress in Open Science policy development & implementation.

At the conference, researchers, librarians, practitioners, infrastructure providers, policy makers, and other ICSTI-member and non-member stakeholders will share both recent Open Science policy developments and their effects on STI management, as well as new tools and recent technical achievements that better enable STI organizations to support Open Science.

The free workshops will take place on Thursday, December 1 and speaker will talk about projects and policy developments supporting the information management & services side of Open Science.
