Open scholarship expert Dr Paul Ayris to visit Teesside University

21 October 2019 @TeessideUni


Dr Paul Ayris, Pro-Vice-Provost (UCL), a highly regarded expert and advocate of open scholarship, will be giving a special presentation in December, 'Leading the Change to Open Science in European Universities'.

The paper will take the LERU Roadmap for Open Science as a blueprint for introducing Open Science principles and practices into universities.

UCL (University College London) is in the top 10 of global research-led universities. It is also the third oldest university in England. Using UCL as a case study, this paper will look at the 8 pillars of Open Science, as defined by the European Commission, and examine progress in introducing Open Science principles and practice at a university level.

The paper will identify the benefits and challenges of the approach, and highlight what remains to be done. The paper will end by examining the LERU statement on the Leadership needed for Open Science to succeed.
