Brainstorming online

Protezione civile

Workshop on Open Science, Research Data Management and Decision-Making

9 April 2024 - 9:00-13:00

The goal of this Brainstorming online Workshop is to promote an open discussion among scientists and different stakeholders on OS and RDM, exchanging and sharing visions, perspectives and opinions on data sharing and managing with a particular focus on policy making and decision making focusing in particular on Disaster Risk Management in the Civil Protection area.

Protezione civile

Expected Outcomes

Being a brainstorming workshop, the main expected outcome is the sharing of visions, the understanding of approaches to implement and support OS (focusing on Open Access to data and research products) and RDM, as well as their implications for decision making. Interpreting the OS as "open as possible closed as necessary", it would be useful to share viewpoints among engaged stakeholders on how to manage openness, embargoes, and restrictions in accessing data and scientific products.

Moreover, this workshop will pave the way for a panel discussion on the same topic that will be held during the 8th European Civil Protection Forum (Brussels, 4-5 June 2024).
