Open Access: opportunities and challenges  

Debate and discussion in relation to open access to publications and on open access to research data have taken place across a range of disciplines in recent years.

The Cost Domain Committees 'Individuals, Societies, Cultures and Health', 'Biomedicine and Molecular Biosciences' and 'Information and Communication Technologies' are hosting a symposium to explore the benefits and challenges consequent on open access developments. It will take place in Vienna, Austria, on 13-14 May 2013.

This event will enable scientific communities to meet together with research data providers/holders and academic and scientific publishers. The symposium will feature scholars and experts from the Social Sciences and Humanities, Medical and Life Sciences as well as Physical Sciences and Engineering and Ict. Initially, discussions will take place along disciplinary lines as to how to implement open access requirements in specific disciplines with a view to exploring all relevant dimensions of the topic. Disciplinary discussions will inform and support a synthesis session focused on a comparative view of the findings and outcomes deriving from disciplinary debates at the symposium.

On the basis of symposium discussions and debates, it is proposed to undertake a multi-level dialogue with EU and national policy-makers and key stakeholders.
