> Joint Appeal for Open Science
> Tuesday, 27 October, 3:30 pm, Geneva (2:30 pm UTC)
> On October 27, a joint appeal for open science will be launched by UNESCO, WHO, CERN and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.
> Through this appeal, the Director-General of UNESCO, Audrey Azoulay, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Michelle Bachelet, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, and Fabiola Gianotti, Director-General of the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN) will call on the international community to take all necessary measures to enable universal access to scientific progress and its applications.
> The open science movement aims to make science more accessible, more transparent and thereby more effective. A crisis such as the COVID-19 pandemic demonstrates the urgent need to strengthen scientific cooperation and ensure the fundamental right to universal access to scientific progress and its applications. “Open Science” is about free access to scientific publications, data and infrastructure, as well as open software, open educational resources and open technologies such as tests or vaccines. Open science also promotes trust in science, at a time when rumours and false information abound.
> Register to, and follow, the event live here <https://who.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_PJ6GLMhwQeOsuHKxXjebfg>
> The joint appeal will also be broadcast live on UN TV <http://webtv.un.org/>

> Appel Conjoint Pour la Science Ouverte 
> Mardi 27 octobre, 15h30 à Genève (14h30 TU)
> Le 27 octobre, un appel conjoint en faveur de la science ouverte sera lancé par l’UNESCO, l’OMS, le Haut-Commissariat des Nations Unies aux droits de l’homme et le CERN. 
> Par cet appel,  la Directrice générale de l’UNESCO, Audrey Azoulay, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Directeur général de l’Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS), Michelle Bachelet, Haute-Commissaire des Nations Unies aux droits de l’homme, et Fabiola Gianotti, Directrice générale du Laboratoire européen pour la physique des particules (CERN) appelleront la communauté internationale à prendre les mesures nécessaires pour assurer l’accès universel aux avancées de la science et de ses applications. 
> Le mouvement en faveur de la science ouverte vise à rendre celle-ci plus accessible, plus transparente et, par conséquent plus efficace. La crise pandémique de la COVID-19 démontre le besoin urgent de renforcer la coopération scientifique et de garantir le droit fondamental à l'accès universel au progrès scientifique. 
> L'expression « Science ouverte » désigne le libre accès aux publications, données et infrastructures scientifiques, ainsi qu'aux logiciels libres, aux ressources éducatives et aux technologies ouvertes telles que les tests ou les vaccins. 
> La science ouverte promeut aussi la confiance en la science dans une période où les rumeurs et les fausses informations prolifèrent.
