OCTOPUS: The new primary research record!

September 17, 2021 @ 10:00 11:30

Dr Alexandra Freeman spent 17 years making science and natural history documentaries at the BBC before taking on a role as Executive Director of the Winton Centre for Risk & Evidence Communication at the University of Cambridge. After seeing the scientific publishing system ‘from the inside’ she came up with the idea for Octopus, a system designed to change the incentive structure for the dissemination of research.

Octopus received funding and support from the UK’s governmental science funder earlier this year and is being built in partnership with the educational digital infrastructure provider Jisc for launch in spring 2022. Join us if you want to know how Octopus can revolutionize the scientific world!
