The panel discussion is part of the event series "Transnational Feminist Dialogues on Science, Technology and Society” and brings together speakers from different disciplinary and regional context to discuss from an intersectional feminist perspective about the scopes and limits of what is understood as Open Science. 

Open Science represents the idea that knowledge production from across different research related domains should be openly designed, processed and shared as early as it is practical in the research process. However, opening up research does not necessarily lead to fairness and inclusiveness, and its innovative character brings new questions alongside the solutions: Whose knowledge is being produced, shared and acceded, and by whom? What does Open Science mean in different settings and academic/scientific cultures? Does Open Science have a transformative potential? Or does it simply reproduce existing power structurs - or worse, create new asymmetries within the processes of knowledge production and circulation? 

On this panel we want to reimagine Open Science from an intersectional perspective. We want to discuss at the technologies, infrastructures, policies and communities of practice that are at the basis of Open Science. Intersectional feminist approaches are needed to shape Open Science so it can respond to structural inequalities beyond its boundaries. Open Science needs intersectional feminism as to develop practices, policies and initiatives with these inequalities in mind.
