Teresa Hackett, EIFL Copyright and Libraries Programme Manager, and Iryna Kuchma, EIFL Open Access Programme Manager, will attend ‘Towards a Global Consensus on Open Science - Online Expert Meeting on Open Science and Intellectual Property Rights’ organized by UNESCO.

UNESCO is leading the development of an international standard-setting instrument on Open Science in the form of a UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science.

Recognizing the policy challenges to balance openness and Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) protection, UNESCO is organizing an expert meeting to discuss the relationships between IPRs and Open Science, to present the different existing instruments and mechanisms that reconcile ownership and sharing/openness, and to exchange views on balanced IPRs and Open Science policies and strategies.

Kuchma was one of 30 international experts who participated in consultations by UNESCO during the development of the first draft of the Recommendation on Open Science
