In 2018 the Belgian Science Policy units of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, the Flemish and Federal Authorities welcomed you at the Palace of Academies for a first conference on Open Access in Belgium. Since last winter, new developments in the field of Open Science, particularly pertaining to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), persuaded the above mentioned entities to renew efforts to inform the Belgian research community. How has Open Science Policy been unfolding in Belgium? Which Belgian partners have joined the EOSC project? What roles have been assigned to Belgian representatives and experts within its governance? This second Belgian Open Science seminar wishes to take up a tradition of informative and interactive commitment towards the Belgian research community.
BE OPEN will be presented at the event by Caroline Alméras (ECTRI- BE OPEN Dissemination and Engagement Leader).
