Open Science : connecting the actors!

Monday November 21, 2022

Open Access Belgium would like to invite you to join the “Open Science: connecting the actors” event on the 21st of November to share best practices, foster community, and encourage knowledge-sharing on Open Science. The conference is free of charge and open to anyone interested in Open Science, training, networking, and Open Data solutions.

At the heart of the Open Access Belgium community is the ambition to open up the way we organize and conduct scientific research. The Open Science teams of the Belgian universities have developed and tested a wide range of training methods, training materials, networking activities and data solutions to facilitate and foster Open Science. Achievements, tools and lessons learned by different institutions will be shared in this networking event.
Join the discussions and meet fellow Open Science experts and enthusiasts!


Registration is free but mandatory. You can register here.
