She is a director of Key Perspectives Ltd, Director of European Advocacy Programmes for SPARC and holds honorary academic positions in the University of Southampton School of Electronics & Computer Science and the University of Warwick Business School.



Online or invisible
Be online or be invisible - so far, so sensible. But there’s online and online. It’s worth picking this issue apart, because some kinds of online presence are not nearly so effective as others. Alma Swan will describe some of the things that are happening in research communication, and why she thinks it won’t stop there. The web offers huge opportunities to do things better, more systematically, more effectively, more cheaply. Alma Swan will give an overview of the opportunities for researchers and the benefits that accrue from taking those opportunities.

Professor Bert van der Zwaan, Rector Magnificus and Acting President of the Executive Board of Utrecht University, closed the symposium.
He confirmed that being visible, especially online, is an important item for scholars and scientists nowadays. However, he emphasized that visibility has to be based on quality and excellence of research: quality and reputation, and not visibility have to be the main characteristics of the current research of Utrecht University.
