Equity in access to the digital tools, skills needed for engagement of different open science actors and multilingualism were identified as key prerequisites for meaningful engagement and dialogue among open science practitioners at multiple scales, from individual researchers to country level. Digital knowledge identifiers were recognized as a way to maximize the benefits of knowledge sharing. As for next steps, the following actions were highlighted as priorities through the discussions of the Group: Identification of good characteristics of existing knowledge sharing platforms, including ways to promote and support multilingualism; Identification of ideal criteria for open and interoperable systems, as well as the ways to illustrate effective interoperability and coordination among knowledge-sharing platforms at multiple scales...."
