STM Innovations Seminar


Driven by Data – moving Open Science forward


Sharing research data is an important enabler for Open Science. Widely endorsed--and even mandated-- by funding bodies and other policy-makers, many disciplines are establishing common conventions on how to make this vision a reality. Through necessity and to aid in reproducibility, publishers are also supporting these endeavours and helping authors make their research data available alongside and linked to their publications. Research Data are thus considered the new gold, for science, research, and society. Today’s Innovation Seminar will offer an exciting tour through and beyond the world of Research Data and the Reproducibility of Research.


The sessions this year will demonstrate how important open research data are for scholars, what they need to make easy sharing happen, how new opportunities are created (keynote). The program will provide practical examples of publishers facilitating this new frontier through data citation standards and data-linking, and how STM supports these ventures. Come and also hear how new products can be created from Research Data, with real-life examples of Text and Data Mining that create valuable data and information and how machine readable data makes Artificial Intelligence work.
