The workshop, which is to take place in Senegal’s capital Dakar, aims to explore measures to increase the visibility of research outputs.

Workshop Questions

  • Is it possible to improve the visibility of these [research] outputs by adopting open scientific approaches?
  • Can the quality of these outputs be improved across the research lifecycle by access to advanced Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)?
  • What specific ICT services are needed by different African Scientific Communities of Practice for their work and how can these be provisioned?

“This workshop presents the opportunity to hear the opinions of leading African scientists and to see recent advances in open science services that have been developed for African Scientific Communities of Practice,” the event website says.
