The JPI Climate Symposium “Designing Comprehensive Open Knowledge Policies to Face Climate Change” will take place on 22 & 23 Oct 2015 in Vienna, Austria.
- To foster the discussion on how to promote, design and implement effective and comprehensive policies towards what is called “Open Access” and “Open knowledge” within the climate-relevant research community (including policy makers, funding agencies, research institutions, practitioners and non-academic stakeholders like NGOs, SMEs, or from the civil society).
- To build capacity through the presentation and discussion of good practices from both the climate research (including research funding organisations and foundations) and other fields of knowledge.
- To reinforce and legitimatise the JPI Climate Guidelines on Open Knowledge (recently adopted by the JPI Climate GB: www.jpi-climate.eu/jpi-themes/OpenAccessOpenKnowledge) as a toolbox for policy makers and research funding organisations when designing and executing climate research policies.
The Joint Programming Initiative “JPI Climate” (www.jpi-climate.eu) is a European network of national funding organisations working together to coordinate jointly their climate research agendas and to fund new transnational research initiatives.
