Subject: "Open Science Works!" Next Tuesday in European Parliament 9am to
11am: Text and Data mining, open access and open research

Dear Friends,

We would like to invite you to the conference “Open Science Works!” in the
European Parliament on October 15th from 9:00 to 11:00 (room PHS 5B001)
under the auspices of MEP Marietje Schaake with the support of the
TransAtlantic Consumer Dialogue (TACD).

“Open”, “access” and “new innovation models” are becoming new buzz words in
many quarters of academia, business and civil society. Nowhere is this
discussion as vigorous as in the field of scientific and academic research.
Intense debate and new proposals of legislation are increasingly present on
these subjects in EU Institutions.

We shall consider “open access scientific publishing”, "text and data
mining”, “open science” and “open education”. These all pose difficult
questions concerning the protection of the public good, scientific
responsibility and the adaptation of science to the digital age. Also at
stake are promoting new business models, saving public money and, even,
saving lives.


Introductory remarks by MEP Marietje Schaake

Christoph Bruch, Helmholz Stiftung, Berlin:  "Text and Data Mining: the way
forward in the EU."

Alma Swan, SPARC, "The EU´s new Open Access Policy: making it happen."

Dr. Tim Hubbard, Human Genome researcher, "The importance and potential of
Open Science".

The European Commission will be represented by DG Connect.

The discussion will be moderated by Mr. David Hammerstein, Senior advocate,
TransAtlantic Consumer Dialogue, Brussels.

We would kindly ask you to confirm your attendance to
openscience.works at gmail.com by 11 October 2013.
Should you require a badge to access the European Parliament, please do not
forget to provide us with your full name, nationality, passport/ID number
and date of birth.
