Join the Belgian Open Access week event: ‘Open Science on the move’ 24-25 October 2016

Participate in the Open Science event, organized by the Flemish and French-speaking universities of Belgium, at the Royal Library of Belgium in Brussels on 24-25 October 2016.

The theme of this year’s  International Open Access Week, to be held October 24-30, will be ‘Open in Action’.  The Belgian universities, with the support of the Royal Library, jointly organize a two-day event titled ‘Open Science on the move’.  As ‘Open Access’ becomes a more and more familiar concept, this event will focus on the broader picture of ‘Open science’ and how to open up all aspects of scientific research.

Topics will include, among other things: open access, open peer review and open data.

Anyone can attend the event although the first day is primarily intended for researchers,  PhD students, postdocs, and (junior) professors, while the 25th of October is oriented towards research administrations, research coordinators and librarians.

  • Monday  24 October: oriented towards researchers – program
  • Tuesday 25 October: oriented towards research administration/coordinators and librarians – program
  • This event will be held at the KBR, Keizerslaan 4 Boulevard de l’Empereur, 1000 Brussels
