Prof. Osman Sankoh (COR, UNIMTECH, Kissy Dockyard, Freetown) addressed the LIBSENSE Open Science Symposium  – Sierra Leone titled ‘Strengthening National Systems – Innovating with Openness’.

In his speech, he outlines two assumptions: that “national systems” refer to the infrastructure enabling open science and that “innovating with openness” involves using open science for innovation within these systems. He underscores the shift toward open science, which fosters inclusivity and involves transparent access to data, methodologies, and findings.
