About the event
In November 2021, UNESCO Member States unanimously adopt the recommendation on Open Science at the 41st session of the UNESCO General Conference. LIBSENSE, as an initiative to create a community of practice for Open Science and to advance the adoption of Open Science services and infrastructure in Africa, is partnering with UNESCO to promote this recommendation at regional, national and institutional levels.
To this end, the workshop was held to address the main challenges and opportunities for the implementation of Open Science in Francophone African countries.
Key actors came together to:
- consolidate experiences and efforts
- propose solutions and actions for Open Science
- initiate a reflection on national and regional policies, action plans and roadmaps for the implementation of the principles of Open Science as recommended by UNESCO.
The event was jointly hosted by LIBSENSE, CNUDST, and the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research of Tunisia.
