The aim is to continue work on a crowdsourced document that aims to agree a broad, international strategy for the implementation of open science that meets the needs of different nations and regions but works globally. The document is already in progress, and all are welcome to contribute:

What are we working on during the do-a-thon? What kinds of support do we need?

  • Work in general on structuring the document
  • Work collaboratively to define top strategic priorities for open science
  • Collaborate to create an open list of OS initiatives, projects and stakeholders, mapped globally.

How can others contribute?

It'd be great to hear ideas - the doc is completely open!

Another element we think will complement this initiative is to create a list of all the organisations working in this area, their mission, geographical focus, and what particular parts of the puzzle they fill (whether technological, social etc). We think mapping initiatives in this way might show how organisations could work together better to achieve a cohesive strategy. Ideas for that also welcome!

Hey all, sorry I wasn't able join yesterday but would love to stay in the loop. Really excited you're working on this. Has got me thinking it may be worth looking back on the OER strategy doc to see if it needs an update - lots has happened in the last 2 years!

No worries at all, Nicole, you were busy doing other important things! Would love any insight/advice from you as this project develops. I don't think any of the co-authors are actual Strategists, so any assistance on that would be more than welcomed. Hope you're enjoying a good post-OpenCon rest!
