This panel event times with the recent adoption of the University’s Open Access Policy. The panelists will engage faculty and staff as well as students by making the connection between sharing knowledge through open access and open science with improving health equity.
Panel highlights include:
Policy and economic challenges in bringing technologies, particularly low-cost ones, to market in low- and middle-income countries;
How open science might contribute importantly to innovation that advances health equity, both here and abroad;
How open data and perhaps citizen science might work, both strengths and limitations of such an approach; and
Technologies that support an open science framework that still enables sustainable scale-up and affordable access to those populations in need.
