The 3rd Open Science Fair Conference: Fostering Local and Global Open Science Communities, September 20-23 2021

Open science is at a crossroads. Implementation and adoption are progressing, with researchers, research institutions, funding agencies, service providers and infrastructures all engaging at various levels. However, different models are emerging which produce a seemingly fragmented ecosystem and achieve small steps on top of traditional scholarly communication system. To enable international and interdisciplinary research, we need to ensure interoperability across communities and services while still maintaining our ability to support diversity of workflows and knowledge systems.


The OS Fair 2021 is organised as an initiative of OpenAIREco-organised by LIBER and other international initiatives in the area of Open Science: COAREIFLForce11LA ReferenciaOPERASSparcSparc Europe.
