Experiment, translate and transform: priorities for the next decade of research on research
Please join us for a special online event to kickstart RoRI's second phase, from 15:00-18:00 CEST (14:00-17:00 BST) on 20 June 2022 . The event is co-hosted with the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF).
Our opening keynote speaker will be Michael Nielsen
who is a pioneer of both quantum computing and open science, and co-author of one of the most cited physics texts of all time. His 2011 book Reinventing Discovery
was one of the FT's books of that year
, and helped to make open science a global issue. He is now based at the Astera Institute
in California, where he works to develop tools and processes to speed up the way scientific discoveries are made. His talk will build on his recent paper
on this theme, co-authored with Kanjun Qiu.
Other speakers include:
- Matthias Egger (President, Swiss National Science Foundation);
- Sarah de Rijcke (Co-Chair of RoRI & Director, CWTS, Leiden University);
- Marc Schiltz (CEO of FNR—National Research Fund of Luxembourg & President, Science Europe);
- Alison Bourgon (Director General—Science Policy, Canadian Institutes for Health Research);
- Thomas Alslev Christensen (Senior Vice-President, Impact, Novo Nordisk Foundation);
- Brian Nosek (Director, Center for Open Science);
- Katrin Milzow (Head of Strategy, Swiss National Science Foundation)
- Dan O'Connor (Head of Research Environment, Wellcome);
- Sue Hartley (Vice-President for Research, University of Sheffield).
We'll also review highlights and what we've learnt during RoRI's pilot phase, and look ahead to priorities and projects for RoRI Phase 2, which will run for five years. Reserve your place
