Australian perspectives on developing a national open research strategy

Over the past year, the need for an overarching national strategy in Australia for open research that aligns the many ongoing individual initiatives has become increasingly apparent. There are an increasing number of countries that have developed and are in the process of implementing such strategies.

The Council of Australian University Librarians and the Australasian Open Access Strategy Group are convening a number of webinars to explore further how an Australian national strategy might be developed.

In this second webinar we heard from panelists: 

Dr Cathy Foley, Chief Scientist, CSIRO and Australia’s next Chief Scientist 

Professor Robyn Owens, Emeritus Professor, and former DVCR, UWA

Ryan Winn, Chief Executive Officer, Australian Council of Learned Academies

Panel Chair – Dr Ginny Barbour, Director Australasian Open Access Strategy Group
