The current rise in COVID-19 infections in the Netherlands has led to the decision that the rescheduled National Open Science Festival will take place in an online setting.
The Festival will include an interactive hybrid panel session, lots of community led sessions, pre-festival workshops in the morning, an online marketplace and virtual social drinks.
Additionally, the following session will be organised in our online session series in the months leading up to the Festival:
January 14th 2021 10:00 -16:00 + 16:00 – 17:00 #OSmeetupNL drinks
Organised in cooperation with the Dutch Open Science Communities.
It will be the first Open Science Barcamp in the Netherlands. This event is based on the successful format of Open Science Barcamp Berlin.
Registration is open here
A Barcamp is a one day event with no predetermined program – the topics of all sessions are determined on the spot. Our online venue (Gather.Town) consists of an interactive 2D environment with virtual avatars, one big plenary room, several smaller break-out rooms, and space to hang out and socially interact with others. During the plenary sessions, anyone can grab the mic and propose a topic for a break-out session. Next, you can join any of those break-out sessions and get to work!
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.
The Open Science Festival especially invites active researchers to attend.
This festival is organized in the context of the National Programme Open Science. Originally, the Festival was supposed to be hosted by Wageningen University and Research on August 27th, 2020. The Organisational Committee is led by the NPOS project ACCELERATE OPEN SCIENCE Fostering initiatives that promote Open Science in the Netherlands.
The following organisations have made this festival possible:
