Regardless of the field of study and discipline, sharing data is one of the most fundamental aspects of maintaining the integrity of research. The availability of research data plays a vital role in ensuring reproducibility and the ongoing development of Open Science.

As has been frequently observed, embracing open science requires a culture change in the entire researcher workflow. It needs rethinking the way in which research is undertaken, shared, published, evaluated, rewarded and curated in a coordinated effort by all participants in the ecosystem.

In this free webinar, various stakeholders that play an equally important role in ensuring FAIR Research Data will give an update on their efforts. This will be followed by a discussion on how greater alignment can be established between policy makers, funders, universities, publishers and others.

Moderated by: Joris van Rossum, Research Data Director, STM

This webinar is part of the STM Research Data Year: Share, link, cite.
