White House Virtual Listening Session|Open Science Possibilities for Lowering Barriers to Entry: Perspectives from Early Career Researchers on Engaging in Open Science


Miércoles, 31 mayo 2023


Open science carries with it a world of possibilities: spurring discovery and equitable innovation, bolstering public trust, democratizing access to research, strengthening evidence-based decision making, and creating a better life for all. These possibilities place open science at the heart of Biden-Harris Administration priorities – from curbing greenhouse gas emissions to reducing social inequalities to ending cancer as we know it.
To help realize these possibilities, the White House is taking action to elevate the needs, priorities, and experiences of those who will shape and inherit the future of open science: the early career research (ECR) community. The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) will host a series of virtual listening sessions to explore perspectives on the challenges and opportunities for advancing open science in the United States and solutions that might be implemented by the U.S. Government.

Registration is required to attend the sessions. A Zoom meeting link and passcode will be provided in an email confirming registration. To register please visit: 

Format: The virtual listening sessions will be open to the public. Registration is required to attend. To accommodate a wide array of viewpoints and representatives, speakers will be allotted up to two minutes per comment. If time permits, participants may deliver more than one comment.

The IDA Science and Technology Policy Institute will be moderating the meeting on OSTP’s behalf. The meeting will be recorded. Participation implies consent for OSTP to capture your name, voice, and likeness, and anything you say may be recorded and transcribed for OSTP use. If you would like to provide information in addition to or in lieu of participation in the listening session or if you have questions about the sessions, please send a brief message to the public email address OpenScience@OSTP.eop.gov. Please direct any logistical questions to Laurie Dacus (ldacus@ida.org).
