Making outputs and processes open and transparent throughout the research lifecycle has enormous benefits for individual researchers, their organisations and society.
The Coronavirus pandemic for example has brought to the fore the importance of rapidly sharing high quality data, models and code to inform government policy.
In addition to publications and data, you can share results, software and code, methodology, protocols and documentation which all helps other researchers replicate your research findings as well as increasing the reach and impact of your work.
We will hear from academic colleagues from different parts of the University about their own open practices and why it is vital in their discipline.
We are proud to present a keynote from Professor Sir Duncan Wingham, Leeds alumnus and chief executive of the Natural Environment Research Council who will update on UKRI strategy and priorities as they relate to open research.
