About the participants
Kathleen Smart (PhD) and Per Pippin Aspaas (PhD) work at the University Library of UiT, helping researchers make their research as openly available as possible. The library has in recent years launched several services such as DataverseNO (an archive for open research data), Open Polar (a search engine for research data and publications on the Arctic and Antarctic), and a series of courses and workshops devoted to the management and sharing of research data in line with the so-called FAIR Principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable). Arguably, FAIR data are requisite not only for the democratization of knowledge, but also for research-based innovation across all sectors.
Tamer Abu-Alam is a university lecturer and coordinator for CloudEARTHi and Inspiring the Minds projects. The CloudEARTHi aims to build innovation capacity in the academic sector in the field of using big data in Environmental Sciences, Sustainability and Circular Economy. In addition to supporting existing startups in the big data field, CloudEARTHi also supports students and academics to establish their companies.
Inspiring the Minds project, on the other hand, aims to reinforce the role of universities as agents of change toward a more inclusive society.
Gerit Pfuhl, is professor at Helsefak and member of PSA (Psychological Science Accelerator). This lecture presents that learning and teaching about open science has much in common for successful innovation.
