OCSDNet is excited to welcome network team members, advisors and IDRC representatives to Limassol, Cyprus for our final network meeting, kicking off with a reception tonight (June 1st) and wrapping up on June 5th 2017.

The intention of the meeting will be to bring together research team members from around the world to discuss final project findings, outcomes and learning around if or how open science principles and practices could be used to facilitate opportunities for achieving development goals and to meet development challenges. Workshop activities will also be geared towards looking to the future of the network, to identify potential new areas of research and collaboration, as well as to discuss the creation of a transformative gender framework for open science. Check out the full workshop agenda, here.

We will also be launching our Open and Collaborative Science Manifesto (Keep an eye on: #OCSDManifesto) as well as our planned book, for our shared network volume, “Situating and Contextualising Openness: Understanding the Diversity and Contexts of Open Science in Development.”
