Open Science Conference, 5th April 2016, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Open Science is a key priority of the Dutch Presidency. The Netherlands is committed to open access to scientific publications and the best possible re-use of research data, and it would like to accelerate the transition this requires.
Bob Jones, PICSE & HNSciCloud Coordinator, was invited to present the PICSE results and the new HNSciCloud project in the "data infrastructure" session.
The goal of the event was to develop a ‘call to action’ document on open science that was drafted before the conference and reviewed during the two days.
During the event there was recognition that changes to procurement are necessary. In addition the role that commercial cloud services can play has been highlighted.
