Register for Open Science on the Move

Jointly organized by OpenAIRE, BICfB and VLIR – Open Science working group

The topic of open access has moved well beyond opening up publications and research data. Additional to those important ways of sharing lies a more integrated approach, generally known as open science. The striving for transparency, public availability and reuseability has made some enthusiastic advocates for Open Science. But what are the possibilities and challenges? And how to apply Open Science in your research workflow?

Find out more during the international Open Access week, where the Belgian Universities jointly organize a two-day event titled ‘Open Science on the Move’. Registrations are now open: you can enrol here. The full program is available here.

On the first day of our workshop, 24 October, we’ll explore the possibilities to apply Open Science all throughout the research cycle: from open data to open peer review, from applying open licenses to using social media and scientific social networks .

The second day will focus on infrastructure and policies. Open Science can after all, only succeed with the proper support. Anyone can attend and the two days are complementary, although the first day focusses more on researchers, PhD-students and post-docs, while the second day is oriented towards research administration, coordinators and librarians.

Some practical information:
The event will take place at the Royal Library of Belgium, Kunstberg/Mont des Arts, 1000 Brussels, 1000 Brussels. We’ll start registrations at 9.00.
You can find an overview of the program here. Please note that slight changes to the program may still occur. If you would like to participate you can enrol here. Registration is free of course but mandatory as we’d like to be well-prepared for your  participation. For more information or questions you can mail send us an e-mail.
