Open Science is a hot topic at the moment: the implementation of Plan S is being decided, more and more researchers are using different digital tools to save and share their data, and science communication and public engagement is more critical than ever given the current political climate. How will these issues impact research funders? Why is Open Science important and what does it involve? What can the people working for funding organisations do to promote Open Science? What are researchers concerns and expectations regarding Open Science and funding?
In this 90 minute Live Chat Dr Emma Harris, ORION Open Science, MDC and Dr Ann Grand, Wellcome Trust, will be discussing these topics drawing on their expertise in Open Science. Emma Harris is a training developer of the ORION Training team and has been delivering training to researchers , research mangers, and funders for several years. Ann Grand is Senior Lead for Engaged Research and Public Engagement for the Wellcome Trust Centre for Cultures and Environments of Health and has written extensively on Open Science issues.
