Rewiring the Ivory Tower? Digital Universities and the Evolution of Open Science

Download to read offline

The evolution of Digital Universities and Open Science is driven by several factors. The high connectivity of the digital age has made it easier than ever before to work collaboratively and share research with a global audience. In a knowledge society, the demand for well-grounded information is rising, as it fosters cultural participation, economic prosperity and social mobility. But not every method of dissemination is equally successful or sustainable. Sharing PDF files online is not enough: Community building, the adoption of digital skills and the development of new filters for online publications have become a vital part of open science. With open data and an evolving set of digital tools, researchers can connect to a wider pool of inspiration. The talk will highlight current trends in Open Science, introducing methods and platforms to participate in its growth.
