Open Science Fair 2019

Join us for 2nd Open Science FAIR Conference, an international event for all topics related to Open Science


Open Science is a new research paradigm facing many challenges, mainly the ingrained research habits accompanied by non-incentive institutional and funder reward systems, the lack of embedded tools and services, the connection to non-academic communities.


OSFair2019 is organized as an emblematic initiative of OpenAIRE, co-organized by 3 other EU projects in the area of Open Science: FIT4RRI, EOSC Secretariat and FAIRsFAIR. It is locally curated by the University of Minho.


Open Science Fair will critically showcase the elements required for the transition to Open Science: e-infrastructures and services, policies as guidance for good practices, research flows and new types of activities (disseminate, mine, review, assess, etc.), the roles of the respective actors and their networks.

    The conference will include keynotes by distinguished speakers, roundtable discussions, hands-on workshops and training sessions, as well as a poster and a demo session. It will bring together different stakeholder perspectives and will suggest roadmaps towards implementation on targeted aspects of Open Science, scholarly communication in national settings and FAIR implementation.

  • Targeted audience

    Policy makers and funders, researchers, research Infrastructures and research communities, repository managers, publishers and content providers, libraries, research administrators, service providers and innovators.

Meet our speakers

OSFair will host key scientists, policy makers and science stakeholders from around the world who will provide inspirational views on how open data and open science influences all aspects of life, policy makers who will tell us what lies ahead, infrastructure/service providers who will present their solutions, and innovators who will bring in their ideas and their notion of openness.


Porto, Portugal

The conference will take place at Congress Centre Alfândega Porto
