UM Open Science event

Because every UM scholar deserves to be seen

UM Open Science event

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

The event starts 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 will be followed by showcases of open educational resources, open access publishing and FAIR data at UM.

The event ends with a networking lunch where you will be able to ask questions or share thoughts with fellow scholars and other attendees.
