Open Access and Open Data at PUSH Universities


PUSH (Presidents United to Solve Hunger) is a consortium of universities from around the world that have the collective mission to end hunger and poverty. Presidents who have signed the Presidents’ Commitment to Food and Nutrition Security have agreed to make food and nutrition security a priority on their campus.

This Webinar will introduce PUSH and will summarise the findings from an exploratory study of 99 PUSH universities in developing, using, and promoting open access and open data policies and practices. This report identified issues and obstacles, level of support provided to faculty, useful resources and best practices, and comparison of findings to the GODAN donor report.


About the Panelists

The Webinar will be led by Anne Mims Adrian and Kara Newby of PUSH and the Hunger Solutions Institute at Auburn University, USA. They will discuss current status open data policies, practices, perceptions of benefits, challenges, and barriers of open data at these universities.
