Join us LIVE for @UN agencies Joint Appeal for Open Science, with @unesco @DrTedros @WHO @bachelet @UNHumanrights – we join forces to promote universal access to #science #progress w/ participation of @CERN.

The open science movement aims to make science more accessible, more transparent and thereby more effective. A crisis such as the #COVID19 pandemic demonstrates the urgent need to strengthen #ScientificCooperation and ensure the fundamental right to universal access to scientific progress and its applications. #OpenScience is about free access to scientific publications, data and infrastructure, as well as open software, open educational resources and open #technologies such as tests or #vaccines. Open science also promotes trust in #science, at a time when rumours and #fakenews abound.
