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.
