September 10th: Faculty of Social and Behavioral Sciences

This year, OSCU organises Open Science Symposia for all faculties. Each half day symposium starts off with a key note lecture. Then we aim for an informal and interactive afternoon in which several colleagues share their experience with particular aspects of Open Science (e.g., open access publishing, preregistration) with their peers in brief presentations. If you would like to contribute by sharing your experience with your peers, please email us.

When: September 10th, 2020
Where: Online via MS Teams
How: The symposium is free, please register HERE.
