The 2017 Science Europe High Level Workshop took place on September 14th in Berlin under the topic “The Rationales of Open Science – Digitalisation and democratisation in research”.
Science Europe has launched this debate on Open Science as a tool for the democratisation of science with the aim to achieve a clarification of the connection between science and democracy and of the distinct responsibilities and competences of both politics and the scientific communities.
This booklet has been designed to provide participants with relevant background information on this complex topic. The outcomes of the debate will be published in a set of Science Europe policy recommendations.
