Focus on Open Science: Research Data, Citizen Science, Access to Knowledge … and Beyond

The CEU Campus
Wednesday, November 22, 2017, 9:00 am – 5:40 pm

Open science is having a major impact on the creation and dissemination of knowledge worldwide, accelerating innovation, influencing policy, facilitating reproducibility of research, and changing the very nature of the scholarly ecosystem.

Join us for a one-day workshop focusing on the core elements of open science, including open access, research data management, e-infrastructures, and citizen science from the perspective of libraries and the researchers they support.  Speakers from across Europe will present on the opportunities and challenges of open science and ask us to envision ways to enable a more open future. 

Attendance is free. Registration required. Limited number of seats available. Register today!
