Open Science: the National Plan and Researchers

11 May 2017

OCW invites researchers to join the first national meeting on Open Science on 29 May 2017.

Learn more about what Open Science can mean for you, what the plans of the Dutch government and scientific organizations are to support and promote Open Science, and give your feedback on the National Plan Open Science. All this in a lively atmosphere with plenty of time for informal discussion with fellow researchers. 

The day will include experiences from several disciplines, highlighting both the benefits and challenges in practicing Open Science. Representatives of the Dutch scientific and government organizations who created the National Plan for Open Science will be present to listen, engage in discussion and answer questions. State Secretary Sander Dekker of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science is also scheduled to attend.

Who should attend?

The day will be a great opportunity for all researchers working in the Netherlands to give their opinion on the aims and goals of the Dutch ‘National Open Science Plan’. It’s a chance to let politicians, funders and administrators know what researchers really need to make Open Science work for them.


The meeting will take place on the 29th of May 2017 and will be hosted at the Aula of TU Delft.
