Meet | Share | Inspire | Care

The National Open Science Festival provides researchers the opportunity to learn about the benefits of various Open Science practices. It is a place to meet peers that are already working openly or that are interested to start doing so. 

Key to this day is sharing knowledge and best practices. Lots of different sessions will be hosted by various peers from all over the Netherlands. You don’t need to have extensive knowledge of Open Science to attend; there will also be sessions for those who simply want to know more about the different aspects of Open Science, its drivers and its barriers.

This festival is organized in the context of the National Programme Open Science. Originally, the Festival was supposed to be hosted by Wageningen University and Research on August 27th, 2020. The Organisational Committee is led by the NPOS project ACCELERATE OPEN SCIENCE Fostering initiatives that promote Open Science in the Netherlands.
