Member Initiatives

How to start a member initiative!

OSCU members are encouraged to initiate and organize their own Open Science events (e.g., workshops, hack-a-thons, brainstorm sessions, informal get-togethers). Any event that meets the following criteria may be called an OSCU Member Initiative:

  1. The event is related to Open Science
  2. The event is initiated by (an) OSCU member(s)
  3. The event is open for participation to anyone interested in attending the event
  4. The event adheres to the OSCU Code of Conduct

OSCU Member Initiatives will be announced on the OSCU website and promoted through the OSCU Twitter account to create awareness. If you would like to initiate an OSCU Member Initiative, please send an email to
