Event description

Description

The Marie Jahoda Annual Lecture was launched in 1997 to celebrate the outstanding contributions that Professor Marie Jahoda CBE made to SPRU.

The 2018 Jahoda Lecture will be given by Liz Allen. Liz is Director of Strategic Initiatives at F1000, where she is involved in shaping new initiatives and partnerships to promote and foster open research.

Open science aims to accelerate scientific progress to turn what is discovered into benefits for all, underpinned by the assumption that technology now allows researchers to collaborate, connect and share knowledge more easily than ever. But are publishers, funders and institutions moving quickly enough to support the rapid changes required for researchers to effectively adopt and navigate this new scholarly landscape?

Liz will offer fascinating reflections on the potential opportunities and benefits of open science and the main policy imperatives for the transition to more open and collaborative ways of doing research. She will also consider the obstacles and challenges that come with key aspects of its implementation. The lecture aims to provoke radical thinking around what the future of science should look like, and what we need to do to achieve it, and to foster discussion and spark ideas.
