You’re invited to a conversation titled Building Technical Resilience in Open Infrastructure.

Last summer, we began a research effort to look at collective opportunities to support the open technologies, systems, and people that enable the flow of knowledge and scholarship. This project, the Future of Open Scholarship, brought together over 110 institutional leaders, infrastructure providers, library consortia, and advocates for open scholarship. This research effort provided a unique opportunity to work with decision makers navigating a system under extreme duress instigated by the COVID-19 global pandemic.

Over the next few months, IOI will be sharing and building on this work through a series of community conversations. These webinars will explore some of the key findings uncovered in this project as well as discuss the path forward, exploring topics including technical resilience, funding models and investment needs, staffing and maintenance, as well as accountability.

Join us on May 5th for our first conversation titled Building Technical Resilience in Open Infrastructure. We’ll hear from those leading efforts to explore integrations, interoperability, and providing community-led services to advance a healthier ecosystem of open infrastructure solutions for research and scholarship. We’ll hear about the Customer’s Right to Replicate from 2i2c and hear about what’s next from some of the infrastructure providers in the Next Generation Library Publishing effort following the recent release of the Assembling New Solutions report.

We’ll be joined by:

  • Chris Holdgraf, Executive Director, 2i2c
  • Alec Smecher, Associate Director for Development, Public Knowledge Project
  • Martin Eve, Professor of Literature, Technology, and Publishing, Birkbeck University; co-founder, Janeway

Registration is free and required. Sessions will be recorded.

IOI is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all events, both online and in person. Participants are expected to abide by the IOI Code of Conduct.
