*UNESCO has launched a global consultation on Open
Science https://en.unesco.org/science-sustainable-future/open-science/consultation
a view to developing a standard-setting instrument in the form of a
Recommendation, to be adopted by the UNESCO General Conference in November

*CODATA has been invited to contribute to this process, to provide inputs
from the organisation and to mobilise our global expert community.*

*H3: Global Consultations on Open Science *
To build a global consensus on Open Science, the development of the UNESCO
Recommendation on Open Science relies on an inclusive, transparent and
consultative process involving all countries and all stakeholders.

The Recommendation is expected to define shared values and principles for
Open Science, and point to concrete measures on Open Access and Open Data
with proposals for action to bring citizens closer to science, and
commitments for a better distribution and production of science in the

The process of drafting the Recommendation is regionally balanced, highly
inclusive and collaborative. It involves multiple stakeholders and is
expected to lead to the adoption of the Recommendation by UNESCO Member
States in 2021.

In developing the Open Science Recommendation, UNESCO is gathering inputs
from all the regions and all the interested stakeholders, through online
consultations, regional and thematic meetings and numerous debates on
implications, benefits and challenges of Open Science across the globe.

*H3 Online Consultation*
Are you a scientist, a publisher, a science policy maker or someone with
experience and interest in Open Science? Your input is important to the
UNESCO process.

Please participate in the survey designed to collect inputs for the
development of the UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science.  The survey may
be completed (in English, French or Spanish) either online or downloading
documents to be returned to the UNESCO team at openscience at unesco.org

For all links and further information please see the page on the UNESCO

*The deadline for submitting inputs is 15 June 2020.*

*H3 Thematic and regional meetings*
UNESCO will hold a series of online and face to face consultations to
support an open debate on Open Science awareness, understanding and policy
development to feed into the UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science. In this
context, a series of regional and thematic consultations are being
organized. For more information see the page on the UNESCO website or
contact the UNESCO team at openscience at unesco.org

UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science will complement the 2017
Recommendation on Science and Scientific Research. It will also build upon
the UNESCO Strategy on Open Access to Scientific Information and Research
and the new UNESCO Recommendation on Open Educational Resources.
