April 7-9, 2021 at CERN IdeaSquare | Geneva
***Information on OIS Research Conference 2021 will be updated regularly***
After postponing the OIS Research Conference 2020 due to the COVID-19-virus outbreak, we are happy to announce the new date for the OIS Research Conference 2021 at CERN IdeaSquare in Geneva, Switzerland, on April 7-9, 2021. While we plan for having a physical meeting, time will tell us to what extent virtual elements will be part of the event.
The organizing committee of the OIS Research Conference 2021 at CERN IdeaSquare invites you to join the discussion about the role and value of open and collaborative approaches to generating and disseminating scientific research.
The conference theme, Open Innovation in Science (OIS), refers to enabling, initiating and managing inter- and transdisciplinary inbound and outbound knowledge flows and collaboration across organizational and disciplinary boundaries in scientific research. Such mechanisms can operate along the entire scientific research process, including the formulation of research questions, design of studies, acquisition of funding, collection of data, analysis of results and dissemination, as well as translating scientific knowledge into innovation. For a more detailed discussion about OIS click here.
Researching OIS includes investigating whether, how, and under which conditions applying open and collaborative practices along one or more stages of the scientific research process influences novelty, efficiency and/or impact of scientific research, taking balanced view that recognizes important contingency factors on the individual, organizational and ecosystem-level.
A formal call for abstracts will be issued in November 2020 (submission deadline: early February). Information regarding the submission and registration will be announced as soon as possible.
Please note that
The workshop officially starts on April 7 at 12:00 with a joint lunch and ends on April 9 at 13:00. We expect participants to be present during the entire time. A detailed conference program will be provided after the submission deadline.
Participation is free, including meals and social program in case of a physical meeting; travel and hotel expenses are not included (please see practicalities below).
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you in Geneva!
