Enhancing Grant Proposals with Open Community Plans: Session One of Open@RIT's Town Hall Series
Golisano Hall 070 GOL-2690
As part of our ongoing effort to cultivate the University’s Open community, Open@RIT is hosting a series of three, monthly town halls this spring semester.
In this session, we'll discuss how Open Community plans enhance a grant proposal's viability amid the current push towards Open Work in Academia.
In the last six months we’ve seen significant support for Open Work from the federal government.
* Memos from The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy issued a new guidance requiring public access to all federally funded research across the arts, sciences and humanities and declaring 2023 The Year of Open Science.
* Despite the term “Science” the National Endowment for the Humanities is also listed in the second memo and its just the tip of the iceberg :-)
* 18 months ago, RIT joined The National Academy of Sciences’ Higher Education Leadership Initiative in Open Scholarship (HELIOS) as per the President and the Provost. This
* 80+ member initiative brings together presidential appointees into working groups on suggestions for evolving Academia to be more Open.
* Philanthropic funders are following suit.
Join us for a discussion on what this could mean for the future of your work here at RIT.
