Participating in UP’s 2021 Open Access Symposium will be as simple or involved as you like. It will be a chance to learn the full rein of Open Science from a regional and global perspective from the experts, hear about their Open Science perspectives on leading initiatives, and an invaluable chance to connect the global momentum toward open sharing with the advancement of policy changes on the local level.
