As part of the UN Science, Technology and Innovation Forum, IFLA was proud to host a side-event focused on how libraries help make open science work in ways that maximise its contribution to development. At the heart of this is the need to apply principles of sustainable development - leaving no-one behind, taking a holistic appraoch - to open science itself.
Join us for a side-event to the UN Science, Technology and Innovation Forum on 3 May at 8:30am New York time (see what time this is for you), focusing on how libraries are helping ensure that Open Science is delivering on its potential to deliver sustainable development.
