Exploding Open Science! Awareness, training, funding

The intention of this session is to discuss the development of open science through awareness, training and funding.

Expanding the adoption of Open Science, in its many trends, requires multiple simultaneous forces. Beyond intrinsic forces that may have all sorts of sources, there are three interaction forces that seem essential for percolation: awareness, training and funding. Of those, we could say that awareness has been much discussed and reasonably acted upon, training has been reasonably discussed but not acted accordingly, and funding has been seen as both a short or long term goal depending on the trend you're considering. This workshop intends to probe how we're collectively balancing our efforts among these forces, where have we been great, where could we be doing better, and where must we do better in the future.

In particular, we'll devote ourselves to discuss concrete actions in training for open science, which is likely the force with highest yields that we can autonomously achieve, yet seems to be one we're having a hard time to undertake. Why? Who's been doing it right? How do we multiply that?
