In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, what challenges do universities face? How should the role of higher education evolve? What difficulties will our new scenario bring? How will we overcome them? How does adapting to digital transformation fit in? What should our research model be?
Universities must change, and spokespeople, faculty members and researchers from the UOC have been sharing their reflections on where a roadmap for the coming years should take us.
We need to question our current research model, with its over-dependence on political and economic circumstances. We need to reconnect it to society and the economy through new paradigms, such as open science and open access. Open science lets us forge linkswith citizens and get them involved, and open access means research can be shared and multiplied, as seen during the Zika virus epidemic and again today. Likewise, manipulative, misleading and anti-scientific positions must be challenged head on."
"A key factor will be guaranteeing net neutrality and accessibility, which are currently under threat from spurious ideological,economic and political interests."
Josep A. Planell President of the UOC
