Open Scientific Infrastructure: in Search of a Development Model

January 14, 2017, 10:00 – 12:00, Building 5, 2nd Floor, Room 223

Annually, the international scientific community produces a great volume of open data about the processes and results of their research. The task, not less important than the production of these data, is to provide global access to them. The answer to this challenge is the Open Scientific Infrastructure, which enables scientists to monitor the quality of scientific research better and faster and to influence its results.

The social institutions for research quality self-control and self-regulation mechanisms in science, emerging based on the Open Infrastructure, will be able to build a more effective system of science organization, while significantly reducing the level of participation of commercial and governmental structures.

Issues for Discussion

  • Open Scientific Infrastructure as a successor to the Open Access Movement. What is in store for the scientific community: gradual movement towards greater transparency and openness of research results, or quick and radical change of the current paradigm of science organization?
  • Technologies and innovation in support of research with a higher level of openness
  • Why do higher educational institutions, science, and the state need the Open Scientific Infrastructure? Current tools and prospects
