2021 Open Access Symposium

In 2021, Knowledge E organised an online symposium for Open Access Week, Towards a More Knowledgeable World: Open Access Research in MENA. We had 13 expert representatives from global organisations and leading regional stakeholders including King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Qatar National Library (QNL), Dubai Health Authority (DHA), the Al Qasimi Foundation for Policy Research, ORCiD, Crossref, Open Access Directory, Harvard University, and Knowledge E.

Our speakers offered a series of presentations providing effective strategies and useful tips for governments, higher education institutions, and individual researchers around the introduction and development of Open Access research and policies. This rich and engaging programme attracted over 600 delegates from 35 countries and 130 institutions around the world. The recordings of the excellent papers delivered at this event are available for free on our YouTube channel.
