A Philosophy of Open Science for Diverse Research Environments

The PHIL_OS project (2021–2025) aims to develop an empirically grounded philosophy of Open Science [OS] that emphasises the diversity of research environments around the world and articulates the conditions under which OS can leverage such diversity to promote good research practice.

We are based at Egenis, the Exeter Centre for the Study of the Life Sciences of the University of Exeter (UK).



On 23rd February, Fotis Tsiroukis and Rose Trappes will give a talk in Exeter u3a’s University Liaison lecture series. Fotis and Rose will discuss the open science movement, and introduce u3a members to the PHIL_OS project.

PHIL_OS was featured in the December 2023 issue of the Newsletter of the Society for Philosophy of Science in Practice (SPSP), in a piece written by our own Emma Cavazzoni and Rose Trappes.

Sabina was interviewed by national Italian newspaper Il Messaggero, “Not just Big Data guiding science, but ethics as well”.
