The Netherlands National Open Science Festival gives researchers the opportunity to learn about the benefits of Open Science practices.

It is a place to meet both peers and policy makers who are already working according to, or enabling, the principles of Open Science.

Netherlands National Open Science Festival

31 August 2023
Erasmus University, Rotterdam


After last year’s successful event with 300 visitors, this year the festival welcomed 400(!) visitors at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam.

Like the previous editions, the festival revolved around sharing knowledge and peer learning: active researchers from universities (of applied sciences), academic hospitals and research institutes in the Netherlands, and policy makers who enable Open Science practices to spread throughout the academic world.

The plenary sessions and the Open Science Together session were live-streamed:

10.00 – 11.00 Plenary Opening

14.00 – 17.00 Open Science Together and Plenary Closing
