(11 May 2021) At a meeting wrapping up Tuesday, diplomats and legal and technical experts from UNESCO’S member states are trying to draw up new global guidelines under a project called Open Science.
“The crisis put a spotlight on how scientific information is produced, shared, communicated,” said Ana Persic, chief of the science policy section at Paris-based UNESCO. “It is a paradigm shift for the scientific community.”
The Open Science talks aim to come up with a “soft law” by the end of this year that governments could use as a guide for setting science policies and systematically sharing data, software and research across borders, Persic said.
