RISIS will land in Ghent, on 27 and 28 May 2019, with a poster presentation for the workshop “Research policy monitoring in the era of open science and big data”.
The two-day workshop, coorganised by OpenAIRE and Data4Impact, with support of Science Europe, will explore mechanisms for research policy monitoring and indicators, and how to link these to infrastructure and services.
The first day will focus on open science indicators as these emerge from national and EU initiatives, while the second will be a forward thinking exploration for more advanced aspects of indicators for innovation and societal impact.
Research funders across Europe are increasingly authorizing Open Science practices for funded research outputs, to support open and free access to valuable elements of the scholarly community. Moreover, for the more advanced research assessment there is a need for monitoring of research output, in order to understand innovation and societal impact of open access.
As EU e-Infrastructure, RISIS responds to these needs by embedding and developing monitoring tools to provide evidence-based data, while at the same time promoting interoperability of information outputs, shareable across networks.
