The participants in the webinar will gain a broader understanding of the importance of involving and cooperating with citizens in the research process. Partnership between the professional researchers, society, memory institutions and other specialists can lead to the development of open culture in research and to a knowledgeable society, and reduce the need for various resources like energy and time necessary for research.
The primary goal of the LibOCS project is to find out how libraries can become better research partners through their services and competencies. The webinar will introduce the results of the project's two studies, in which professional researchers, citizens and specialists from memory institutions from the Baltics kindly agreed to participate as respondents. The webinar will be held during the annual International Open Access Week.
