18th February, 2021

Title: Open Science, a new perspective for research evaluation
Speaker: Dr. Elena Giglia, Univerity of Turin
Abstract: Open Science means not only conducting research differently, but also a new way of evaluating it. New criteria are needed, this has been known for some time, but it is also necessary to take into account the entire research process and not only the final product in the form of an article. From this point of view, the data are of particular interest in light of the birth of the European Open Science Cloud - an opportunity that Italian research cannot miss - and of the upcoming publication of the National Plan for Open Science in Italy.
