Open Science – UM General PhD Trainings

In this interactive session, we will discuss the concepts of open science and open access, and you will learn more about research data management. Differences and similarities concerning these two topics within different disciplines will be discussed using several use cases.

Learning goals
• The students will learn about the Open Science philosophy
• The students will learn about the options for Open Access publishing
• The students will learn more about the FAIR data principles
• The students will discuss critical aspects of the Research Data Management plan between different disciplines

Target group: All PhD candidates are highly encouraged to participate in the training programme. It is mandatory to participate for internal and external PhD candidates that started after January 1st 2024.

Prerequisites: To participate in this interactive session, the online modules associated with the open science theme need to be completed. These modules are accessible through the UM general PhD trainings website.

!Important!: Please bring your answers from the online modules to the interactive session.

Registration: The session is offered in an online setting as well as an on-site setting. Please register for just one of these sessions. In the online setting priority will be given to external PhD students. Please note that on-site sessions can always be converted to an online setting due to unforeseen circumstances. You can cancel your registration up to 5 days before the start of the session. If you fail to do so we will notify your Graduate School.

If you attend a session on-site, please make sure to bring your UM-card to enter the library building. If you are an external PhD student who does not own a UM-card, please contact us at generalphdtrainings@maastrichtuniversity.nl. We will make sure you get access to the library. 

Language: English

Practical information: Considering the interdisciplinary nature of the sessions there is only a limited number of seats available per graduate school. Fully booked seats for a specific graduate school will be displayed as N/A. So register soon!

The session may be cancelled if there are too few subscriptions. We strive to notify you about cancellations a few days in advance.
