EMBL-ABR: an interview with Stephen Eglen

Category : Uncategorised

Asked how a network such as EMBL-ABR might encourage Open Science for Australian biosciences this week’s interviewee, Cambridge’s Stepen Eglen, answers: “I am cautious of adding more infrastructure (hardware, databases, websites) to support open science activities at a national/institutional level. I would hope instead that EMBL-ABR adopt and support existing international infrastructure wherever possible. It is tempting to provide new infrastructure, and might even be possible to get funding to establish new resources. However, long-term maintenance of these resources is a concern, and so I think it is better to pool resources with other current approaches. If you feel something is missing, lobby EMBL/EBI to provide it.”
