About the Webinar
The progressive acceptance and implementation of open access has paved the way for new possibilities in the creation, authentication, organization, manipulation and preservation of data and information, and its broader access, sharing and communication. Momentum towards the achievement of the vision of the International Council for Science of a ‘world where excellence in science is reality’ is gathering pace.

From their respective standpoints as practising scientist and policy maker and research funder, Geoffrey Boulton and José Cotta will present their current thinking on the behavioural and technical issues to address, and the barriers to confront, in order to convert the vision of open science in practice.
