The BioMed Alliance organises its annual Spring Meeting on 14 May bringing together a diverse group of representatives from member societies. Delegates will meet in Brussels to discuss the European Elections, Plan S and Open Access Publishing and internal BioMed Alliance affairs.

During the morning session, high-level representatives from Wellcome trust and the European Commission will engage in a discussion on Plan S with publication experts from our member organisations. This is a topic of great interest as it potentially changes the publication landscape and has significant consequences for both researchers and academic societies.

The speaker list includes:

Keynote speaker: Robert Kiley, Head of Open Science at Wellcome Trust

  • Panellists:
  • Jean-Claude Burgelman, Head of Unit Open data Policies and Science Cloud, European Commission
  • Prof. Laszlo Fesus, Chair of the FEBS Publications Committee
  • Jan Cools, editor-in-chief of the HemaSphere journal, EHA
  • Thomas F. Lüscher, editor in Chief of the European Heart Journal / Valentina Tursini, Scientific Publications Director, ESC

We look forward to fruitful discussions. The full programme and more information can be found here.
