Kick-off meeting of the OPUS project

The Open and Universal Science (OPUS) Project Kick Off Conference, coordinated and hosted by PLOCAN, took place on September 19–20, 2022 at PLOCAN premises in Telde, Gran Canaria, Spain.

It is the first conference gathering all OPUS Project Consortium partners in one place since the project started on September 1. In the following period of 36 months, OPUS will conduct a specific focus on reforming the research(er) assessment system to incentivise and reward researchers to take up Open Science practices: providing open access to research outputs, early and open sharing of research, participation in open peer-review, measures to ensure reproducibility of results, and involving citizens, civil society, and end-users in the co-creation of research and innovation agendas and content.
