Open science conference 2018, Back-to-Back Belgium-European Commission

21 November 2018, Brussels, Belgium

Open Science goes beyond open access to publication, encompassing the sharing of open research data and citizen science. It also paves the way for the development of appropriate metrics, incentives and rewards. Since Open Science solutions have to be developed in a coherent way both at national and European level, this conference combines a discussion of the Belgian Open Science policies with debates relating to a H2020 Policy Support Facility Mutual Learning Exercise on Open Science with a prominent European outlook. Special emphasis is put on researchers working in an Open Science environment, skilling, incentivising and rewarding them.

Venue: Palace of the Academies, Rue Ducale 1, 1000 Brussels

4th Science Forum: Science for the post-2020 global biodiversity framework

23-24 November 2018, Sharm el-Sheikh, Arab Republic of Egypt

This event takes place during the 14th Conference of the Parties on the Convention on Biodiversity, and will contribute to the further global process on developing the post-2020 global biodiversity framework.

Aim of this science-policy dialogue is to bring together and engage scientists and policy makers to discuss what scientists could offer to the preparation of the post-2020 agenda, on concepts for transition, the role of scenarios and pathways, as well as scale and scope of actions towards the 2050 vision, framing the post-2020 targets, and on restoration and nature-based solutions as tools to reach biodiversity targets.

What is necessary, what are the options and how to ensure action? How to operationalize transitions and transformational change for biodiversity and human wellbeing? How to open new pathways to accelerate implementation of nature-based solutions for nature, people and the economy across different sectors, and on engaging wider parts of the society?
