Published on Friday, 14 July 2017

REGISTRATIONS ARE OPEN (until 22/10/2017)

Research is becoming progressively more open, transparent and accessible to society. Open Science is all about making publications free to access (Open Access), rendering data and code available to re-use and share (Open Data, Open Source) and changing towards more transparent and collaborative practices.

Do you speak Open Science? You might still be unsure what is in it for you! Why is it beneficial and how can it be implemented? What better way than hearing from successful fellow researchers who have built their career doing Open Science!      

Mark your calendar for Luxembourg’s first National OpenAIRE conference on 26 October 2017 and attend either physically at the Belval Campus (Esch-sur-Alzette) or online through our event live stream!

You will hear from Prof. Lennart Martens (Ghent University, Belgium) about the benefits from Open Science, while Prof. Conchita D'Ambrosio (University of Luxembourg) will give you insights on its link with society and how we may be "Open in order to…fight inequality". The talks will be followed by an opportunity to discuss, debate and social network around a standing buffet!

Registration is now open. Click here to see the full programme and register for the event

Feel free to contact the National Open Access Desk representative in Luxembourg (OpenAIRE) if you would like to get further information about the event:
