Presented by

About this talk

How does the current reward system reflect how we value research? Is a reform of this system necessary to encourage researchers to engage in open science activities? How do current and proposed reward systems support early career researchers? Questions on how academics' careers and contributions are assessed and valued are under discussion. This webinar brings together a panel of experts on open science and career assessment to focus on the current reward system and the potential for its reform. This promises to be a lively exchange of ideas between representatives of Eurodoc, Young Academy of Europe, and Elsevier. The aim is to gain a deeper understanding of possible changes to how we consider academic value, retain mobility internationally and beyond academia, and create incentives for open science activities. Join our panel of experts as they discuss this timely topic.
