International perspectives on open research & curation

Panel:

  • Riitta Maijala, Department for Higher Education & Science Policy, Finland
  • Clare McLaughlin, Education & Science at Australian Embassy and Mission to the EU
  • Mark Thorley, Head of Science Information, NERC (Natural Environment Research Council)

Moderator:

Much current funding and research in digital curation is being driven and supported by a worldwide move towards openness and sharing in all fields of research. Although this activity takes place on many scales, it is national policy and activity that is often crucial in assisting change. This panel invites speakers from around the world with knowledge of national policies to consider how change is being affected, the degree to which national action makes a difference, the barriers faced and the ways in which national bodies can coordinate internationally to encourage openness in research.
