On 11 October 2022, we will organize the Open Science Day 2022 conference in Four Points by Sheraton Ljubljana (Mons) hotel. It will represent our national tripartite EOSC event. The conference is one of the establishing acts in founding the Slovenian Open Science Community, which strives to evolve and encourage the use of open science in Slovenia.
At the end of last year, Slovenia adopted the legislation for open science principles in use and the Slovenian Open Science Community was founded. The development of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is a priority within the European Research Area (ERA), which is why the first Open Science Day event brings together key shareholders: EOSC, European Commission, Slovenian players that create policies, financiers and the Slovenian Open Science Community (SSOZ). The event is part of tripartite events series organized by EOSC Association in cooperation with delegates of EOSC's steering board.
The event will host discussions on ERA’s commitments and begin to pave the way to the harmonized advancement of Slovenian research area within the context of open science and European guidelines, as well as provide a stepping stone to establishing a network of decision makers, scientists, and service providers. The goal of this is to build an encouraging research space, which will provide results in line with the FAIR principles.
