Open Science Summer @UNIC4ER

06/06/2024 10:30 - 28/06/2024 12:00

The Open Science Summer will provide expert knowledge and practical skills to raise the awareness of early career researchers for a comprehensive and recent understanding of Open Science and to support them to integrate Open Science techniques into their own research. Following the UNIC4ER Engaged Research Strategy, doctoral researchers and postdocs will discuss the impact of Open Science – for their research but also for society.

The Open Science Summer combines expert discussions and qualification workshops. Experts of all universities share their knowledge and experiences on the most important aspects of Open Science. Their joint discussions with the participants contribute to shared understandings of Open Science and integrate doctoral researchers and postdocs into the ongoing discussions – taking into account the diversity of research. The expert discussions and workshops consider training offers already existing at the individual universities and try to advance the knowledge and skills within the network. Existing offers at individual partner universities can be integrated into the programme. The Open Science Summer is part of the UNIC4ER Open Science Campus.

Have you already taken part in the UNIC Open Science Autumn in 2023? Take the opportunity to exchange ideas with other experts and gain new impulses or learn more about the reorganisation of the evaluation of scientific output during the closing panel. We look forward to meeting you again!
