Celebrating Openness: Open Research & Public Engagement
The Open Science Community Groningen (OSCG) will be hosting the Celebrating Openness: Open Research & Public Engagementevent on the 23rd of November, at the Keuningzaal (3214.0063), UMCG (Antonius Deusinglaan 1, 9713 AV Groningen). The event will focus on public engagement and its importance for Open research dissemination to the general public.
The event will kick off with a keynote talk by Yorick Karseboom who will give a talk on Science Shops – what are they and how they facilitate public engagement. Following, we have the three winners of the Open Research Award present their work in 3 lightning talks. The Open Research Awards are organized together with the university library and celebrate the many ways in which academics make their research more accessible, transparent or reproducible. We end with an interactive panel discussion about the internalization of public engagement: challenges, hurdles and opportunities.
There will be catering for coffee and cakes so make sure to save your spot. Mark the details in your calendar and follow us for more details.
