THE POSSIBILITIES OF OPEN SCIENCE: WHITE HOUSE LISTENING SESSIONS WITH EARLY CAREER RESEARCHER COMMUNITIES
Open science has the potential to unlock a world of possibilities: spurring discovery and equitable innovation, bolstering public trust, democratizing access to research, and strengthening evidence-based decision making. These possibilities place open science at the heart of Biden-Harris Administration priorities – from curbing greenhouse gas emissions to reducing social inequalities to ending cancer as we know it.
To help realize the possibilities of open science, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy is taking action to elevate the needs, priorities, and experiences of those who will shape and inherit the future: the early career researcher community. OSTP will host a series of virtual listening sessions to explore perspectives on the challenges and opportunities for advancing open science in the United States and solutions that might be implemented by the U.S. Government. These listening sessions are hosted as part of a Year of Open Science, announced by the White House in January 2023 to advance open science policies across the federal government. The sessions will be open to the public and may be recorded for OSTP’s use. Registration is required to attend. The upcoming listening sessions will be as follows:

Research Security Program Standard Requirement: White House Listening Sessions on NSPM-33 Implementation
Maintaining both the openness and security of our science, technology, and innovation enterprise is critical to ensuring the nation’s competitiveness. The United States must continue to maintain the benefits of our open research enterprise while mitigating the potential risks associated with interference in our research ecosystem, all the while ensuring that measures taken reduce rather than fuel xenophobia or prejudice.
The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and Federal agency partners will hold listening sessions on the draft National Security Presidential Memorandum 33 (NSPM-33) Research Security Programs Standard Requirement to offer the higher education and broader research community the opportunity to provide verbal feedback to the Federal Register notice. These sessions will be open to the public and may be recorded for OSTP’s use. Registration is required to attend. The upcoming listening sessions will be as follows:
Research Security Programs Standard Requirement Listening Session Two: Working with the Higher Education Community toward NSPM-33 Implementation
Who: The public, including higher education institutions and supporting organizations, professional societies dealing with research administration, and the broader research community
When: Monday, June 12, 1:00 PM-2:30 PM EDT
