Edinburgh Open Research Conference 2023

On May 15th 17th the University of Edinburgh Library Research Support Team and grassroots organisation Edinburgh ReproducibiliTea are once again joined forces to run the Edinburgh Open Research Conference 2023. 

Edinburgh University is committed to making Open Research the new normal. In this year’s gathering, our focus was on the ways in which Open Research practices can positively support efforts to address global challenges - whether with respect to sustainability and the climate crisis, decolonising research, advancing healthcare, or any other area. The conference provided an opportunity  people from across the UK and further afield to come together to discuss how adopting the open research principles of open access, fairness, participation in research, and open data can ensure that our work can help to address these global challenges.
