    Open Science Programme

    Utrecht University wants to promote open science as part of its promise to make science more open and even more reliable, efficient and relevant to society. That is why it developed the Open Science Programme.  This programme aims to stimulate and facilitate researchers to put open science into practice. Public Engagement is one of its themes. The Open Science Public Engagement Fellows work to stimulate and inspire public engagement.
