UM Open Science event 2019

On Friday 25 October a UM Open Science event took place in the context of the International Open Access Week 2019.

The event started with the official signage of the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) and a speech on research assessment by our rector Rianne Letschert. This was be followed by showcases of open educational resources, open access publishing and FAIR data at UM.
