DFH Open Science meet-up on May 9

15 April 2019

We would like to invite you to the Open Science meet-up in the University Library on Thursday 9 May. What is the current state of affairs in the field of Open Science? What are the practical implications for researchers? And how far are we with 'Plan S'?

UG Assistant Professor Rink Hoekstra will explain what Open Science means for him in practice, and UG Open Access and Scholarly Communication Specialist Gulia Trentacosti will inform us about the developments concerning ‘Plan S’. You will have plenty of opportunity to discuss these developments further with colleagues during the concluding drinks reception, and to see some examples of Open Science in practice at the information market. Come and discover the latest developments in the field of Open Science!
