Video Conference

Gong delivered a speech on “Meeting the New Challenges of Open Science in the Digital Age”. He shared how Peking University has long been a proponent of open science, the movement to make scientific research and its dissemination accessible to all. For instance, papers published by Peking University about research projects involving collaborations with other institutions account for one-third of the university’s total published research results. 

Gong added that in the face of global challenges, universities should accelerate the building of digital infrastructure and promote open access to information and data. Universities should work to establish open, transparent, equitable and inclusive rules and regulations regarding open science that would respect the diversity of academic fields and differences across countries. During the first thematic session on “Open Science: From Concepts to Practice”, Gong explained the challenges faced by research universities in promoting open science and offered his recommendations.
