The discussion will also highlight opportunities for communication and collaboration across networks and the shared values and goals of networks across geographies and disciplines.



August 22: Advocating for Change in How Science is Conducted to Level the Playing Field


Open science practices have the potential to greatly accelerate progress in scientific research if widely adopted, but individual action may not be enough to spur this change.

Advocating for these improvements requires coordinated action.
