@luchenry.voyage, Kate Ettinger and possibly others with links to the GOSH community are involved in organising sessions at Tech4Dev 2018, 27-29 June at EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland. Is anyone else planning to be there and would you be interested in submitting an abstract and paper on the GOSH Roadmap? The deadline is 5 Jan 2018 and more information is here:
Below is the session that @luchenry.voyage is leading and seems very relevant, although there are others to consider:
SE13-CCT: “Open science: an opportunity for the global south?”
Session leader: Luc Henry, Scientific Advisor, EPFL
Session Co-Leader (s): To be determined
Open science could be considered a two way process. How can we put mechanisms in place to allow scientific
discoveries to travel from high-income countries to low-income countries, but also vice-versa, in an open and
fair way? What can be learned from technologies developed in the Global South, that could often be relevant
to other places? What are promising initiatives enabling access to global knowledge through open science?
What are the main obstacles? How do language barriers hinder the benefits of open science?
