During 2020, the need for an overarching national strategy in Australia for open research that aligns the many ongoing individual initiatives has become increasingly apparent. There are an increasing number of countries that have developed and are in the process of implementing such strategies. The Council of Australian University Librarians and the Australasian Open Access Strategy Group convened a number of webinars to explore further how an Australian national strategy might be developed.
This webinar focused on how an Australian national strategy for open research might be developed. The panel included:
- Dr Cathy Foley, Chief Scientist, CSIRO and Australia's next Chief Scientist
- Professor Robyn Owens, Emeritus Professor, and former DVCR, UWA
- Ryan Winn, Chief Executive Officer, Australian Council of Learned Academies
The panel chair was Professor Ginny Barbour, Director Australasian Open Access Strategy Group.
