What is Open Science to me? Online workshop
Open Science has the potential to change and open up the scientific system to everyone. Communication skills and knowledge about how to involve, engage and collaborate with stakeholders and end-users are key to be able to reach out to other researchers, collaboration partners and the public. To know how to manage communication throughout a project lifecycle is a necessity for future funding applications.
Through group discussions and practical exercises, you will get tips on how to create a data management plan, communicate your research and involve and engage different stakeholders in your project or research.
Some aspects of Open Science are also requirements in the European Commission’s research and innovation program Horizon 2020 and its successor Horizon Europe, as well as in national programmes and calls for proposals. In this workshop we will discuss the basic principles of Open Science and how you can apply them to your work. You will get an overview of the main aspects of Open Science, such as open access, open data, science communication, public engagement and citizen science. Through group discussions and practical exercises, you will get tips on how to create a data management plan, communicate your research and involve and engage different stakeholders in your project or research.
