Dear All (apologies for cross-posting),

I would like to invite you to an exciting event about Open Data that we are organising at the University of Cambridge in the evening of 4 November:
Open Data - moving science forward, or a waste of time and money?

Wednesday 4 November, 7pm - 10pm

Are you aware of the new funders' requirements<http://www.data.cam.ac.uk/funders> for sharing research data? Will Open Science and sharing research data benefit society and help move science forward? Or is Open Data simply a waste of time and money?

Come to the Open Data panel discussion and take part in a conversation led by researchers, funders, and policy-makers:

*         Rafael Carazo-Salas<http://www.gen.cam.ac.uk/news/bbsrc-big-data-award>, Group Leader, Department of Genetics, University of Cambridge

*         Sarah Jones<http://www.dcc.ac.uk/about-us/dcc-staff-directory/sarah-jones>, Senior Institutional Support Officer, Digital Curation Centre

*         Frances Rawle<http://www.mrc.ac.uk/research/research-policy-ethics/data-sharing/policy/>, Head of Corporate Governance and Policy, Medical Research Council

*         Tim Smith<http://tjs.web.cern.ch/tjs/>, Group Leader, Collaboration and Information Services, CERN/Zenodo

*         Mark Thorley<http://exchanges.wiley.com/blog/2014/06/02/his-life-is-open-access-and-open-data-meet-mark-thorley-of-rcuk/>, Research Councils UK Open Access Policy, and Natural Environment Research Council

The discussion will be around five main topics:

*         Benefits of Open Data

*         Possible negative aspects of data sharing - What are the possible side effects of data sharing?

*         Accessibility of Open Data

*         Open Data and the future of publishing

*         Incentives for data sharing
You are welcome to contribute your own questions to any of these topics<http://goo.gl/forms/itb7kLsIIK>.
