Single researchers, citizen scientists, research teams, international research collaborations and research infrastructures will be invited to present by examples how open science will affect the life of a researcher. What are the components of Open Science and their priorities as these are applied to a research community? What is missing? What should be improved? Purpose of this session is to: - define the most important components of open science, intended as "the Opening of the creation and dissemination of scholarly knowledge towards a multitude of stakeholders, from professional researchers to citizens” [http://www.openingscience.org/about/] - reach a common understanding of the Open Science Cloud - discuss “open” applies to different types of resources and services The audience and a group of panelists will be invited to address the following questions: (1) “Open Science Cloud offers researchers from all disciplines seamless, open access to the advanced digital capabilities, resources and expertise they need to collaborate and to carry out data- and computing-intensive science. Secure and trustworthy, the Open Science Cloud engages researchers in governing, managing and preserving resources for everyone’s benefit.” Do you share the concept of Open Science Cloud? (2) What services/resources are part of the Open Science Cloud and what is out of scope? (3) What is open the Open Science Cloud ? how open access applies to different types of resources like Data, publication, software (nonrival resource), Computing, network (rival resource) and other types?
