Open Science is the road to the future. But what is it actually about? Why do policy makers stimulate the transition towards Open Science? What it is in it for me? And… How do I do it? Did you ever wonder about these or other questions, or are you just interested? Join us at this digital event on May 20th!


Open Science Symposium 2021

Together with Young Science in Transition (YoungSiT), a group of early career scientists from the UMC Utrecht, OSCU organises the Open Science Symposium 2021 at the Faculty of Medicine on May 20th from 13:00 to 15:45.

About Open Science in Utrecht

Three years ago, in 2018, Anita Eerland and Loek Brinkman started OSCU, and in 2013 Frank Miedema was one of 4 who wrote a position paper on the state of Science. They all believe(d) Science is beautiful and Science could and should be better, they were among those that led the Transition we see today.
Because 3, 8, 13, 18 and 42 are beautiful numbers, the 3rd, 8th, 13th, 18th, and 42nd registered attendee will receive a unique signed momento of the Symposium and OSCU.
