Open Research Data – are we on track?

31. Mai 2024 - 15:00 bis 17:00

The aim of Open Research Data (ORD) is to make scientific data available in a transparent way as well as for reproducibility and reuse purposes. Switzerland published its ORD Strategy in 2021, and an Action Plan in 2022. With the experience gained so far, it is time to reflect on these developments: How well is ORD accepted, implemented and applied? What intended benefits could have been realised so far? Are risks and challenges well accounted for?

Please register until 20 May 2024.
