Save the date: National Open Science Festival


Get ready for the third edition of the Netherlands National Open Science Festival! After last year’s successful event with over 300 visitors, this year the festival will be held at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam.

Like the previous editions, the festival revolves around sharing knowledge and peer learning: it is aimed at both 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. In several workshops and sessions, you will exchange experiences and learn about the current state of affairs regarding Open Science. These will all be in-person, as only the plenary sessions will be livestreamed.

Join by registering, free of charge, from 1 June onwards and please spread the word (#osf2023nl), as the festival is all about connecting! Follow us on Mastodon and Twitter.

Do you have a topic related to Open Science that you want to discuss or share with peers? This is a great opportunity to tap into the collective knowledge!
