UNICA (the Network of Universities from the Capitals of Europe) organized a seminar on academic leadership in open science policies and implementation. It was attended by approximately 30 rectors and vice-rectors from UNICA member universities and other university staff.
The invited presentations, panel discussions and audience comments crystalized importance of the following topics:
- Universities are leaders in open science;
- Scholarly communication and research assessment have to change with universities playing a very important role;
- Neither universities nor national or European research funders can act alone, cooperation is needed for the successful and time-efficient implementation of open science principles.
The presentations are available at the seminar web page.
