The Future of Research: Assessing the Impact of Plan S

The bold ambition behind Plan S is to ensure that full open access to published research finally becomes a reality. Yet, what does it mean for the future of research?  Join us for an international symposium at KU Leuven, where distinguished experts will debate the prospects for researchers, universities, learned societies and academies. Professor Luke Drury (Royal Irish Academy) will represent ALLEA as Board Member and lead author of ALLEA’s response to Plan S.

The conference is free and open to all and includes a welcome reception at the historic University Library of KU Leuven on the evening before the conference. The event is organised by Academia Europaea, the Young Academy of Europe, KU Leuven Libraries and Cardiff University.
