opening plenary session of the FAIR Convergence Symposium appraised the
state of Open Science in 2020.  Shamila Nair-Bedouelle and Ana Persic
discussed the draft UNESCO recommendation and efforts to encourage Open
Science and reporting on progress from member states.  Peter Gluckman and
Geoffrey Boulton underlined the strategic importance of Open Science for
the International Science Council and in particular activities, like the
African Open Science platform to develop south-south cooperation on
research infrastructures.
Jean-Claude Burgelman spoke of the tipping point towards the internet of
FAIR data and services and the importance of cooperation on a Global Open
Science Cloud.  The recording of the session may be viewed here

This theme will be developed further, starting with Plenary Session 2:
Convergence for Global Open Science Infrastructures
30 Nov at 11:00 UTC).

In that panel session, we will hear from major Open Science platform and
infrastructure initiatives across the Asia and Pacific region (Mazlan
Othman, ISC Office for Asia and Pacific, watch prerecording
<https://vimeo.com/483240681>), in China (LI Jianhui, on the Global Open
Science Cloud cooperation project and the China Science and Technology Cloud),
in Australia (Rosie Hicks, on the Australian Research Data Commons), in
Europe (Karel Luyben on the European Open Science Cloud), in Africa
(Tshiamo Motshegwa on the SADC Cyberinfrastructure and the African Open
Science Cloud), and in the US (Bob Hanisch on the NIST Research Data
Framework).  Some further information about the speakers and topics is
available here

This overview will be followed by two parallel sessions on Tuesday 1

Mobilizing the Global Open Science Cloud (GOSC) Initiative: Priority,
Progress and Partnership
1 Dec, 11:00 UTC) will introduce the Chinese Academy of Science funded
international cooperation project to encourage collaboration, alignment and
interoperability between regional Open Science cloud and platform
initiatives.  We invite input and contributions as we build cooperation to
help respond to the UNESCO Recommendation.  The project will form a key
part of the ISC CODATA Decadal Programme ‘Making Data Work for Cross-Domain
Grand Challenges’.

A Research Data Framework RDaF: Invitation to International Cooperation
continue this discussion and examine to what extent the Research Data
Framework can be useful contribution to cooperation and alignment.
