6 & 7 February 2013
The University of Auckland
Auckland, New Zealand
A growing community of researchers worldwide are exploring new, open commercial and academic models to enhance the reach and impact of their research. Open research practices are increasingly being driven by international funding agencies that require grant holders to publish their results under Open Access and to share their data as widely as possible. Doing research in the open is akin to worldwide changes happening in government and business, where open innovation has enabled people to achieve more together than they ever could alone.
The purpose of the Open Research Conference is to explore new, open models of research that speed up the effective transfer of research outputs and improve economic, environmental and social impacts in the New Zealand and Australian contexts.
Open Research will include formal talks as well as an unconference to encourage free discussion. If you'd like to take part by talking about something or leading a session, please get in touch.
There are other events leading up to this that will help to set the agenda and get discussions going.
Registration for the conference is now open.
