Panel Session

Research Assessment

Panelists: Bernard Rentier (Chair) - Rector Emeritus of University of Liège, Bonnie Wolff-Boenisch - Head of Research Affairs at Science Europe, Bregt Saenen - Policy and Project Officer at the European University Association, Frank Miedema - Vice Rector for Research at Utrecht University and chair of the Utrecht University Open Science Program, Pastora Martinez Samper - Vice President for Globalization and Cooperation at the Open University of Catalonia, Expert group on Open Science of the European University Association
Duration: 1.5 hr
Room: Archive Hall

Current research assessment systems, heavily based on publication metrics, and often relying on indirect or journal-based metrics (like Journal Impact Factor) to assess the quality and impact of individual publications, are being growingly considered as one of the most important barriers to the adoption of Open Science by the research community. New, more accurate, comprehensive, multi-dimensional, transparent and responsible approaches and tools for research evaluation are needed to support the transition to Open Science and to improve the quality of assessment. This has been recognised by many universities and other stakeholders (e.g. the report by the European Commission Working Group on Rewards under Open Science).

In this panel, jointly organized by Open Science Fair and the European University Association (EUA), the results of EUA’s Europe-wide university consultation on research assessment for recruitment and career progression, as well as some innovative efforts to improve current approaches from European universities and research funders will be presented and discussed.

Application of RRI and Open Science in Public Service: bridging the gap between society and policy and decision makers

Organisers & Speakers: Gonçalo Praça - Ciência Viva, Olga Glumac - Sociedade Portuguesa de Inovação - SPI
Duration: 2 hrs
Room: Ribeira II Hall

The workshop will provide tools on how to better approach, engage and integrate society in solving local challenges by using design-led and co-creation methodologies (closely linked to the open science and open innovation for whose solution is important to practice RRI). Taking this into account, the workshop will be particularly relevant for policymakers, and research administrators who work with design and co-creation processes and are responsible for the public engagement at their institutions. It will propose methodologies for tackling local challenges together with its citizens.

Fostering a FAIR research culture - what works?

Organisers & Speakers: Jos van Wezel - EOSC PILLAR, Eva Mendez, Francisco J. Núñez Benjumea - FAIR4Health, Susanna-Assunta Sansone - FAIRsharing RDA WG, EOSC-Life, IMI FAIRplus, Isabelle Perseil - RDA Europe/RDA WG on FAIR Maturity, Brian Matthews - ExPaNDS, FAIRsFAIR, Joy Davidson - FAIRsFAIR, Najla Rettberg - OpenAIRE, Natasha Simmons - RDA Data Policy Standardisation IG
Duration: 2 hrs
Room: Arquivo Hall

This workshop will explore some examples where successes have been realised and consider if these are extensible to other domains. This work will feed into recommendations being developed by the FAIRsFAIR project to help improve FAIR policy and practice.

How identifiers can help you in Open Science

Organisers & Speakers: Frances Madden - The British Library, Helena Cousijn - DataCite, Paolo Manghi - ISTI-CNR, Jessica Parland-von Essen - CSC, Ivo Wijnbergen
Duration: 2 hrs
Room: Miragaia Hall

In this workshop you will explore the identifier landscape and we hope that afterwards you will engage others to use and benefit from persistent identifiers (PIDs). Persistent identifiers are at the heart of the FAIR principles and are becoming increasingly important in all research workflows.

How can support and training offered by the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) be more effective? Which training and guidance resources are needed at the EOSC level? How can we ensure they can be found and used? How can training and guidance resources, i.e. materials and event information, be pooled effectively across the EOSC? Jointly organized by the Community of Practice (CoP) for Training Coordinators and LIBER, this workshop will cover recent developments in EOSC Skills and Training and discuss recommendations for the EOSC. The workshop will result in a set of concrete steps from the training community to improve the findability, accessibility, interoperability and reusability of EOSC training resources.
