Latest Activity: Oct 9
Find out how research and knowledge sharing is changing and the tools and strategies that will support innovation in public policy and practice.
Across government, academia, the community sector and industry, the production, use and management of publicly funded research and information is in crisis - both in Australia and around the world. Determined efforts are underway in many sectors but often occur in isolation from other campaigns and without a sense of the wider system. Held during International Open Access week, the APO Forum 2018 will respond to the call to 'Design the equitable foundations for open knowledge'.
This one day forum will focus on understanding the issues affecting research publishing and use in public policy, practice and industry, and look at how we can change aspects of the system to ensure public knowledge is F.A.I.R. (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) now and into the future.
The discussion will cover:
The challenges and opportunities for research engagement and impact, knowledge mobilisation, equity and access, open government
Innovative publishing and social data platforms
The potential and dangers of new technologies and automated decision-making
Business models and strategies for reinventing and supporting the public value of knowledge.
