Hi All

Yes, as Tom mentions the open science groups would love to put on a
collaborative session with open development on open science for development
(more info on current work
in our working paper

We were waiting until the call came out for ideas so thanks Claudia, we
would really like some space in the agenda if the open development working
group will have us! The session would be interactive and it would be good
if we could stretch to at least an hour but obviously we're happy to work
around the rest of the agenda as it develops.

Do let us know what you think and many thanks
