Seminar Open Science - May 29, 2017

On Monday May 29, 2017, the first national meeting on Open Science is organised for researchers. The meeting will be hosted at the Aula of TU Delft. 

The meeting is an opportunity for all researchers working in the Netherlands to give their opinion on the aims and goals of the Dutch ‘National Plan Open Science’. It’s a chance to let politicians, funders and administrators know what researchers really need to make Open Science work for them. 

The day will start with a series of short presentations by researchers from several disciplines, highlighting both the benefits and challenges in practicing Open Science. Representatives from Dutch scientific and government organizations who created the National Plan for Open Science will also present their perspective. State Secretary Sander Dekker of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science is also scheduled to attend.

Participants (both researchers and organizations supporting research) will have the opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences at the informal ‘knowledge commons’ that will be held during the lunch break. Bring your Open Science questions and best practices and be prepared to share them!  

In the afternoon, small breakout groups are planned to discuss various aspects of Open Science in general, and the aims and ambitions of the National Plan Open Science in particular. Representatives of the Dutch scientific and government organizations who created the National Plan for Open Science will be present to listen, engage in discussion and answer questions. The day will end with a plenary debate, summarizing the outcomes of the breakout sessions.
