The National Federation of Advanced Information Services (NFAIS) is offering a two-part virtual workshop on Thursday, June 16 and Monday, June 20, 2016. This virtual workshop is called Open Data Fostering Open Science.

Open data initiatives continue to create new scholarly research opportunities through the development of transparent policies, practices and partnerships.

A significant part of the momentum behind the open data movement comes from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy’s 2013 memorandum, “Expanding Public Access to the Results of Federally Funded Research.”

There are clear benefits of open data sharing. However, there are also challenges and risks that need to be addressed to ensure open data’s future.

This workshop is designed for scholarly researchers, publishers, librarians, government officials, scholarly society and foundation staff, and information professionals.
