Webcast of funder policy session at ELPUB 2008

The ELPUB 2008 Conference Schedule for June 27 included an afternoon Plenary Session entitled: “Funding Policies and Research Access – Round Table”. A webcast of this session is online, at: http://connect.scholarsportal.info/p85848935/. (My thanks to Geoff Hynes for the link to the webcast).

The session was chaired by Eve Gray (University of Cape Town) and the panelists were: Fred Friend (JISC), Geoff Hynes (CIHR), Neil Thakur (NIH), Kathleen Shearer (CARL) and Francis Ouellette (OICR).

The individual presentations in the webcast can be found in the following (approximate) time intervals:

Fred Friend (0-0.22); Geoff Hynes (0.23-0.41); Neil Thakur (0.42-0.52); Kathleen Shearer (0.53-1.05); Francis Ouellette (1:06-1:17). The presentations are followed by questions from the audience (1:18-1:38). The webcast has not been edited, and parts of the audio aren’t optimal (especially during the Q & A session).

Most of the remainder of the webcast involves a presentation by the Closing Speaker of the two Keynote Speakers, Stevan Harnad (1:45-2:44).
