The next 10 years of Open Data
A Figshare webinar that looks ahead to the next 10 years of open data. What should the roadmap of open data uptake look like in academia?
Figshare celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2022 and have been reflecting on 10 years of providing leading repository software to universities, publishers, funders, government agencies, pharmaceutical organizations, labs and more. As we embark on the next phase of our journey, this webinar will take stock of the current landscape of Open Data and what the coming years could bring for Figshare and the community as a whole.
2022 also saw the so-called ‘seismic’ OSTP memo and in January 2023, the NIH’s new Data Management and Sharing Policy will take full effect. During our webinar we’ll discuss the rise of national and international open data mandates and what they mean for publishers, universities and importantly researchers themselves.
