19 September Webinar: Access to Knowledge – A Matter of Equity
Join this webinar on 19 September 2023, from 14:00-15:00 CEST in order to hear about the Knowledge Equity Network (KEN) a new international initiative committed to reducing inequalities through increased access to knowledge. Register here.
In this session introducing the Knowledge Equity Network (KEN), we will look at how the Declaration on Knowledge Equity supports the cause for open access to knowledge, linking this in particular to the focus of the work of Knowledge Rights 21 on regulatory reform to benefit education and research.
The session will explore the aims of the Knowledge Equity Network (KEN) as a catalyst for the work of the signatories of the Declaration, that brings together Higher Education Institutions, professionals, funders, publishers and other like-minded organisations.
In particular, it will look at how changes to working practices go hand-in-hand with the regulatory reform that networks such as Knowledge Rights 21 promotes. Together, this helps enrich our collective collaborative efforts. Participants will also learn about how they can contribute and otherwise get involved.
The session will feature contributions from:
Masud Khokhar, University Librarian and Keeper of the Brotherton Collection (University of Leeds) and Chair of Research Libraries UK (RLUK);
Antonio Martínez-Arboleda, Professor of Open and Digital Education, Knowledge Equity Network and Co-director of the Centre for Digital Research in Education; and
Martine Pronk, Executive Director at LIBER Europe.
