The virtual 3rd United Nations Open Science Conference will be held from 8 to 10 February 2023, 9.00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (New York Time) at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.

The conference is organized by the Dag Hammarskjöld Library of the United Nations Department of Global Communications in collaboration with the Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Division of Sustainable Development Goals, and UNESCO’s Division of Science Policy and Capacity-Building.

Under the theme “Accelerating the Sustainable Development Goals, Democratizing the Record of Science”, panels and keynotes will focus on three streams:

  • Equity in open scholarship
  • Reforming scientific publishing
  • Strengthening the science-policy-society interface
