Open Science Seminar

Being Strategic about Open

March 31 2017 | 14:30 - 18:00h | TU Delft Campus 

Open Science concerns openness in the entire cycle of practicing science, increasing access and transparency in both research, education and valorisation, based on the principle of circulating knowledge by sharing, reusing and collaborating. During this Seminar we will share and discuss examples how openness in education and research can support TU Delft's mission to contribute to a sustainable society for the 21st century and challenge you to think about what open education and open research means for you in your daily practice.
The Open Science Seminar is part of a two day program, including a Delft Data Science Seminar (10:00 - 15:00h) for which you can register as well. Learn more about the Delft Data Science Seminar

Ir. Wilma van Wezenbeek, Director TU Delft Library
As director of the TU Delft Library and champion in the international field of OpenScience, Wilma van Wezenbeek will guide you through the benefits of openness in all aspects of doing research, from Open Access publication of scientific articles to Research data management.

Prof. dr. Ir. Geert-Jan Houben, Web Information Systems
Geert-Jan Houben, both full professor of Web Information Systems (WIS) at the Software Technology (ST) department at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) and member of the working group TU Delft Open Science, will challenge you to think about what Openness could mean to you in the different aspects of the full scientific process, from hypothesis to publishing your articles, sharing your insights through education and sharing data with your peers.

Dr. Gary Steele, Quantum Nanoscience
In his daily life, Gary Steele explores the final frontiers of science on quantum nanoscale. What would be the impact of openness in the scientific process in cutting edge research fields such as these? Join the discussion and share your thoughts.
