Debate inserido na Semana Internacional do Acesso Aberto

Moderação: Maria Fernanda Rollo (Departamento de História, NOVA FCSH)
Oradores: Kostas Glinos (Head of Unit for Open Science, European Commission) e João Mendes Moreira (Diretor da Área do Conhecimento Científico, ​FCT/FCCN).

2020 marca o reforço do compromisso da Investigação com os princípios da Ciência Aberta. Não só com a abertura dos novos programas de Investigação e Inovação da FCT e da Comissão Europeia, mas também com o estado de emergência global provocado pela pandemia COVID-19 que tem demonstrado o valor e a necessidade do trabalho colaborativo e da abertura de dados e resultados científicos.

Esta sessão visa a promoção do debate, no âmbito das Ciências Sociais e Humanas, sobre as políticas e recomendações vigentes e os desafios propostos para o futuro, nomeadamente aqueles que dão o mote à Semana Internacional do Acesso Aberto deste ano – equidade e inclusão estrutural. O debate será aberto à comunidade, que está convidada a colocar questões aos oradores.

In 2020 the commitment to Open Science was reinforced. Not only by the new EU and FCT Research & Innovation programmes, but also by the global state of emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic that has proven the value and necessity of collaborative work and the opening of research data and scientific results.

This session’s aim is to debate, within the community of the Social Sciences and Humanities, policies and recommendations and challenges for the future, namely those related to the OAW2020 topic – structural equity and inclusion. Participants are encouraged to ask questions.
