OSI-hosted meetings include all stakeholder groups to ensure we see the big picture and not just part of it.
OSI-hosted meetings include delegates from around the world as we attempt to formulate global solutions.
OSI-hosted meetings are action-oriented, focused on coming up with workable solutions and not just ideas.
Beginning in 2018, OSI participants will also participate as speakers and panelists in other global meetings, communicating OSI’s lessons of experience and also forging partnerships with universities, publishers, research institutions, governments, funders, societies and policy groups interested in moving forward with workable, global solutions to open research.
