We had a wonderful time as we gathered students, researchers, early career professionals and faculty to learn more about the future in open access at OpenCon 2016 Lagos. We have always believed in a world where there is equal access for everyone to intellectual works and that the removal of paywalls on research data and materials would cause an exponential growth in research and development across all sectors in our nation.
