EuChemS is represented on the High-Level group by Executive Board Member Wolfram Koch.

The OSPP has a new Chair, Eva Mendez Rodriguez who has expressed her desire to see missions turned into actions. The meeting moreover broached the important, if controversial, subject of ‘Plan S’, which aims to accelerate the transition to full and immediate Open Access to scientific publications.
