What is Open Science? -- Video

Historical Context

UNESCO, as the United Nations Agency with a mandate for Science, is the legitimate global organization enabled to build a coherent vision of Open Science and a shared set of overarching principles and shared values. That is why, at the 40th session of UNESCO’s General Conference, 193 Members States tasked the Organization with the development of an international standard-setting instrument on Open Science in the form of a UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science. Following the consensus reached during the intergovernmental meeting of experts held from 6 to 11 May 2021, the Draft text of the Recommendation will be put forward for adoption by UNESCO’s General Conference during its next session in November 2021.
