COMSTECH – UNESCO Webinar on open science

Date: 10th March 2022

Time: 12:00 pm – 14:00 pm Pakistan Standard Time

Background:

Open Science is about global scientific collaboration. This collaboration needs to be conducted under the principles of trust, equity, transparency and responsible research conduct at a global scale. It is an enabler of collaboration without borders.  It involves both human values and technological considerations.

This collaboration is achieved and facilitated by sharing the outputs of research, which should be open and freely accessible. Sharing is performed either directly – by accessing and reusing the outputs, or indirectly – when reuse adapts these outputs to produce knowledge in domains not imagined by those who produced them, maybe decades later. Global collaborators come from many cultures,  speak thousands of languages and live and work under a wide variety of administrative, legal and financial frameworks. In the open science ecosystem, science knows no borders – geographical, temporal nor cultural.

Target Audience:

The webinar is open to students, researchers, young scientists, and academicians from the OIC member states and other countries.
