Anneke ZuiderwijkOpen Research Data sharing and use by means of infrastructural and institutional arrangements

Dr. Anneke Zuiderwijk is an Assistant Professor in open data at the Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. Her research is focused on the development of theory that explains how, why and when infrastructural and institutional arrangements can incentivize open data sharing and use behavior by governments, researchers, companies and citizens. During her PhD Anneke developed a theory for the development of open government data infrastructures, which she also transformed into advice for open data policy-makers. Several elements of her theory have been implemented in international projects, including FP7 ENGAGE (2014) and H2020 VRE4EIC (2018). Anneke obtained her PhD with distinction, only awarded to the top 5% of TU Delft PhD candidates. In 2016, she received the international Digital Governance Junior Scholar Award and she was ranked as one of the most influential open data researchers worldwide (link).
Anneke served as a conference programme chair (dg.o2018, dg.o2019), conference chair (I3E-2015), associate chair (OpenSym2017), associate editor (ICIS2019) and track chair (CeDEM2014; 2015, 2016, 2017, EGOV-CeDEM-ePART2018, 2019). The importance of her research was also emphasized through best paper awards she received at important conferences in her field of information science (EGOV2012, Dg.o2014). Finally, she is co-founder of three online courses: Open Data professional
education (53 experts), Open Science MOOC (1,500+ participants from 100+ countries) and Open Government MOOC (nearly 10,000 participants from 150+ countries).

Brian NosekCrowdsourcing Science

Brian Nosek is co-Founder and Executive Director of the Center for Open Science (http://cos.io/) that operates the Open Science Framework (http://osf.io/). COS is enabling open and reproducible research practices worldwide. Brian is also a Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Virginia. He received his Ph.D. from Yale University in 2002. He co-founded Project Implicit (http://projectimplicit.net/), an multi-university collaboration for research and education investigating implicit cognition--thoughts and feelings that occur outside of awareness or control. Brian investigates the gap between values and practices, such as when behavior is influenced by factors other than one's intentions and goals. Research applications of this interest include implicit bias, decision-making, attitudes, ideology, morality, innovation, and barriers to change. Nosek applies this interest to improve the alignment between personal and organizational values and practices. In 2015, he was named one of Nature's 10 and to the Chronicle for Higher Education Influence list.
