My personal take.
Clearly the list was chosen on a stratified organisational basis, with
preference to organisations that have the word 'Europe' in them (and yes,
that's a slightly sarcastic comment). If only Open Knowledge was called
'Open Knowledge Europe' perhaps we might have got Jenny in :)
I'm super glad to see Michela Vignoli (YEAR), Sabina Leonelli (GYA),
Rebecca Lawrence (F1000Research), John Wood (RDA), Natalia Manola
(OpenAIRE), Kristiina Hormia Poutanen (LIBER), Kurt Deketelaere (LERU).
Biggest concerns / unknowns (and to be clear I mean the organisations here,
not the people):
EMBO (I don't perceive them to be progressive when it comes to open
research. Perhaps big resistors to change, although they are welcome to
prove me wrong. "Hi" if you're reading this EMBO)
European Physical Society ???
European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences ???
Biggest surprises not to be on the list:
EMBL (The European Molecular Biology Laboratory): major intergovernmental
organisation specialising in basic research in the life sciences, funded by
public research monies from more than 20 member states.
Max Planck Society
That there is only one person representing funding organisations strikes me
as odd. Aren't these the organisations that traditionally lead policy and
Any other opinions? Or is it best for strategy that we keep honest thoughts
like this to ourselves? ;)
