– In your session you are going to talk about the European Research and Innovation Systems in transformation. What kind of transformation are we talking about here?
We could start with open access of course, but it is the nature of science that has been changing from a closed system to an open and sharing one. It affects virtually all components of doing science and research. It shifts in particular the focus from «publishing as fast as possible» to «sharing knowledge as early as possible». Or maybe in the end, the transformation we are talking about, is just about science done right?
