Open Science: Epistemologies, science policy implementation and digitalisation

Stewart, Benjamin

This workshop explores Open Science and the promises and challenges for science and society.  After briefly covering the definition, history and application of Open Science policies, we discuss why they are relevant and what barriers and concerns there are for implementation.  The workshop engages with the challenges of universalising access to knowledge in a world with a plurality of epistemic communities and developmental agendas.  Lastly, we discuss the role that digitalisation plays in implementing Open Science policies and what this means for sustainable development.

This workshop was undertaken as a deliverable for the secondment of Benjamin Stewart from the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik in Bonn, Germany to Instituto Mora in Mexico City, Mexico, for the EU Horizon 2020 MSCA-RISE project Promoting Research on Digitalisation in Emerging Powers and Europe towards Sustainable Development (PRODIGEES) (GA #873119)
