Programme Spring meeting


Welcome Coffee


Expert analysis of the upcoming EU elections


Discussion of the promotion of open access publishing & Plan S




Exchange of views on BioMed Alliance Activities


The morning session will be dedicated to topics that are of relevance to all member organisations including for instance the upcoming European Elections and Plan S (the European initiative that promotes open access publishing). We will invite both external speakers (such as representatives of Wellcome Trust and Science Europe) and member organisations to discuss their views on Plan S. This session will showcase key insights on how to cope with the increased push for open access publishing. 

The afternoon session will allow members to discuss ongoing and upcoming BioMed Alliance activities and provide input. The agenda and related documents will be circulated shortly. 

Your presence will be highly appreciated and of major significance to all member societies and to the BioMed Alliance. We hope many of you can attend the meeting and kindly ask you to confirm your participation.
