Summary:

[Google transl.] NOT FOR PROFIT: OPEN SCIENCE AND THE ROLE OF THE UNIVERSITY

When, about twenty years ago, the first instances towards Open Access emerged and Open Science Internet was still a tool that promised decentralization of powers and democracy. In those years it was thought that scientific and academic institutions that do not work for profit should play a fundamental role in the creation of the infrastructures, processes and contents of open science.

Today, open science has certainly made much progress. There is an impressive mass of scientific content (software, publications, data) available free of charge and with re-use rights, i.e. accompanied by open licences such as Creative Commons Licenses.

But what is the role of the university and other scientific-academic non-profit institutions in the governance and management of open science?Can the university still claim a leading role in open science or does it now present itself as a cog in a market mechanism dominated by commercial platforms with enormous power to control information?Faced with the power of commercial publishing databases, generalist and scientific social networks and search engines, what is the university's task?Is open science a bulwark of university autonomy and academic freedom? We will try to answer these questions during a day of study during which foreign guests and representatives of the Italian universities most involved in the promotion of open science will discuss proposing visions and experiences.
