Report of the 2017 Science Europe High-Level Workshop

Science Europe High-level Workshops bring together the heads of the European research funding and performing organisations, high-ranking representatives of the national ministries, and of the European Commission on an annual basis. The 2017 Science Europe High-level Workshop was organised by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research of Germany (BMBF). It focussed on the rationales of Open Science and the alleged link between digitalisation and democratisation in research.


The aim of the workshop was to clarify both the relationship between science and democracy, and the different responsibilities and competences of politics and the scientific communities with regard to the implementation of Open Science. A booklet by the organisers presenting the main objectives of different models prepared the ground for the discussions. Owing to the interactive setting of the conference, the discussions did not only involve the panellists, but all workshop participants.
