Project ID 2210641041

Within the domain of Open Access, UNESCO will implement activities to assess different open and equitable modalities for knowledge creation, their transparencies and distribution processes, including the use of FAIR principle. It will do so by advocating frameworks to strengthen capacities to adopt and use Open Solutions policies for Digital Common Goods and promote sustainability models and innovation. These activities will contribute to the implementation of the OA Strategy, adopted by the 36th Session, and build on the 41st General Conference's advocacy for Open Science in Support of Digital Goods. UNESCO's activities in Open Solutions will also promote the use of new technologies for openness of data, its generation and assimilation, and address disinformation in climate change.
