ABOUT THE CONFERENCE: Participants attending the conference were informed on the recent developments regarding open science in the European Research Area (e.g., Council Conclusions on the transition towards an open science system, Open Science Policy Platform, European Open Science Agenda, European Open Science Cloud - first report). Government of the Republic of Slovenia has adopted the National strategy of open access to scientific publications and research data in Slovenia 2015-2020 in September 2015. What are the remaining issues of open science and how to deal with them in Slovenia as part of the European Research Area? OpenAIRE provides services for reporting for researchers, project coordinators and funders. From 2017, research data in Horizon 2020 will be open by default, with possibilities to opt out from the Open Research Data Pilot. Virtual research environments are being established in the European Research Area, e.g., within the OpenDreamKit projectOpen science will be the default mode of operation for today's early career researchers.

ABOUT THE SPEAKERS

After 10 years working as an engineer in the defence sector in France, Patrick Brenier joined the European Commission in 2001 where he contributed to the formulation and implementation of EU policies to increase the R&D intensity (3% target), notably R&D State aid, fiscal incentives and knowledge transfer. He then moved to economic analysis and the assessment of Member States' research and innovation policies, as part of the European Semester of enhanced policy coordination which steers the Europe 2020 strategy. He joined in 2014 the unit in charge of developing the EU science policy and supporting its transition towards Open Science. The EU flagship project on Open Science is the development of the European Open Science Cloud.

Urban Krajcar, MSc, started his career as the counselor at the European Commission’s Representation in Slovenia where he was involved in the process of Slovenia's accession to the European Union. In 2009 he took the position of the Head of the Minister’s Cabinet at the Government’s Office for Local Self-Government and Regional Policy and in 2010 shortly after the Minister's resignation joined the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology where he was Head of Unit for Structural Funds and responsible for the implementation of major R&D instruments in the framework of Structural Funds. In March 2013 he was appointed Director-General of Science Directorate at the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport by the Slovene Government.

Dr Wainer Lusoli has been working for fifteen years at the interface of science and policy, at University, at the Commission's Joint Research Centre, now in Brussels helping design the European Open Science Cloud at DG Research and Innovation. Before joining the DG, he was a Senior Scientist at the Commission's Joint Research Centre, working on regulatory aspects of information technologies and data protection; on economics of personal data and identity markets; and on the architecture of identity across public and commercial services.In his previous career as an academic, Wainer got a PhD from the London School of Economics and higher degrees from Bologna University and Europaeum; he was a Research Fellow at the LSE and at the University of Salford, and then a Senior Lecturer at the University of Chester. He worked on issues directly concerning the information society, citizen participation, democracy, political representation and new media. He gave keynotes, papers and talks at more than forty international events and published widely on new media in scientific journals. For what it matters in an age of altmetrics, he has an h-index impact factor of 23. He has to his name a book (2013, Voice and equality: the state of electronic democracy in Britain), and a report (2012, Pan-European Survey of Practices, Attitudes and Policy Preferences as regards Personal Identity Data Management), the largest opinion survey ever conducted on privacy, identity and data protection in Europe.

Dr Tony Ross-Hellauer is Scientific Manager for the OpenAIRE2020 project, based in the Electronic Publishing unit at Göttingen State and University Library. He has a PhD in Information Studies (University of Glasgow, 2012), in addition to MA (Philosophy) and MSc (Information and Library Studies) degrees. He is an enthusiastic advocate of Open Science whose research interests include e-infrastructures, repositories, information retrieval, as well as the philosophy and history of technology.

Dr Marijan Beg is a Research Fellow at the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment, University of Southampton. He graduated with a BSc degree in Electronic Engineering - Microelectronics from the University of Novi Sad (Serbia) in 2010 and obtained a MSc degree in Nanoelectronics and Nanotechnology from the University of Southampton (UK) in 2011. He completed his PhD at the University of Southampton (UK) in 2016 with thesis: “Skyrmionic states in confined helimagnetic nanostructures". Marijan's research interests include micromagnetics, development of finite element and finite difference micromagnetic simulation tools, magnetic skyrmions, helimagnetism, spintronics, magnetic nanodevices, computational science and engineering, simulation and modelling, and complex systems. He is currently a Research Fellow at the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment working on the implementation of Object Oriented MicroMagnetic Framework (OOMMF) Virtual Research Environment (VRE) as a part of OpenDreamKit Horizon 2020 European Research Infrastructure project.

Dr Jonathan P Tennant has just finished his PhD in Palaeontology at Imperial College London in the Department of Earth Science and Engineering. His research focuses on patterns of biodiversity and extinction in deep time and the biological and environmental drivers of these patterns, as well as the evolution of crocodiles. Jon is also passionate about science communication and strongly believes that science should be in the public domain. He takes a deep interest in following and talking about how current trends in open science impact scholarly communication. He also maintains a blog, Green Tea and Velociraptors, and tweets actively about topics close to his heart.
