Meet | Share | Inspire | Care

The National Open Science Festival provides researchers the opportunity to learn about the benefits of various Open Science practices. It is a place to meet peers that are already working openly or that are interested to start doing so.  Key to this day is sharing knowledge and best practices. 

However, you don’t need to have extensive knowledge of Open Science to attend; there will also be sessions for those who simply want to know more about the different aspects of Open Science, its drivers and its barriers.

Open Science
