OA Week 2023 – Caribbean Hub

Date: Wednesday 1 November 2023

Time: 16:30 UTC  View in various time zones


We are excited to introduce the newly formed Caribbean GOA-On Hub, which will cover the wider Caribbean region, focusing on areas not covered by neighbouring GOA-ON Hubs. The formation of the Caribbean GOA-ON Hub is a critical first step in increasing the region’s capacity for OA monitoring, research, collaboration, and communication. In this session, we will share the results of the OA Needs Based Assessment and the work that led to the Hub formation, as well as highlight work being conducted by current Hub members.
