*ABOUT THE WEBINAR*

The progressive acceptance and implementation of open access has paved the
way for new possibilities in the creation, authentication, organization,
manipulation and preservation of data and information, and its broader
access, sharing and communication. Momentum towards the achievement of the
vision of the International Council for Science of a ‘world where
excellence in science is reality’ is gathering pace.

From their respective standpoints as practicing scientist and policy maker
and research funder, Geoffrey Boulton and Jose Cotta will present their
current thinking on the behavioral and technical issues to address, and the
barriers to confront, in order to convert the vision of open science in
practice.

Confirmed topics and speakers are:

   - *Pathways to Open Science **– Geoffrey Boulton, University of
   Edinburgh, Royal Society, and President of CODATA – UK *
   - *From Open Access to Open Science: A Vision –* *José Cotta  Head of
   Unit Digital Science, DG CONNECT, European Commission – Belgium*
