IWA Publishing is thrilled to welcome 18 Open Access Ambassadors from around the world to a new programme aimed at increasing global Open Access uptake.
OA Ambassadors will raise awareness about OA and related opportunities through IWA Publishing in their local communities and broader networks. The cohort of early career researchers will also brainstorm and give feedback directing future IWA Publishing OA activities and initiatives. As representatives of both the International Water Association and IWA Publishing, Ambassadors will help in our joint goals to empower the next generation of water leaders and to shape the future of the water sector.
The group held their first kick-off meeting last week over Zoom to introduce themselves, discuss the program and get excited about Open Access!
