Australian Roadmap for Open Research

Thursday 13 June 2024 | Canberra

A nationally significant conversation to initiate design of an Australian Roadmap for Open Research

Australia needs a clear vision and co-ordinated leadership for Open Research. 

This invitation-only policy roundtable will connect a diverse group of stakeholders from across government, research funding bodies, peak bodies, the higher education sector and subject matter experts to consider these issues and ways to improve research impact and achieve better public outcomes. 

International speakers and panellists will demonstrate how we can transform research culture and the role of institutional leadership. A facilitated discussion will then test sector appetite for taking the next steps in Australia, including practical reforms that could begin now. The conversation will take place under the Chatham House Rule. 

Presenters and speakers included:

  • Professor Erin McKiernan | University of Mexico
  • Ashley Farley | Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
  • Dr Kamran Naim | European Organization for Nuclear Research
  • Dr Tiffany Straza | UNESCO
  • Professor Christopher Pressler | University of Manchester
  • Chris Banks | Imperial College of London
  • Professor Kathy Bowrey | University of NSW
  • Adjunct Professor Ginny Barbour | Queensland University of Technology
  • Professor Duncan Ivison | University of Sydney
