Summit: Rochester Institute of Technology- Open work in Academia

7 September 2022 - 9 September 2022

Why Now?

The time is ripe to look at Open Work across communities to compare, contrast,
and cross-pollinate best practices.

  • The National Science Foundation is soliciting proposals for funding to support “Open Source Ecosystems” to improve sustainability, impact, and translation of “open source research products.”
  • The National Institutes of Health has released new policy to improve and refine the sharing of, and collaboration around, research data.
  • The National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) have issued a tool kit to improve and encourage university support of Open Scholarship.
  • Across the European Union, the creation of national policies on Open Science and Open Source Program Offices (OSPOs) for Government is accelerating.
  • OSPOs have been created by a few universites to utilize techniques pioneered in private industry to better facilitate academic Open Work.

Join Us
