Open Science Day

On 11 October 2023, Umeå University Library is organising Open Science Day, a conference on the theme of Open Science. You choose whether you want to participate in person or digitally via Zoom. The day before the conference, a discussion on research data in artistic research will also be organised.

The Open Science Day at Umeå University wants to give a better understanding of Open Science and the changes that come with it. As a researcher or PhD student, how can you take advantage of Open Science for your ongoing projects and future career? The Open Science Day will provide an opportunity to discuss how we currently work with Open Science at the university, explore new possibilities, and address the challenges that need to be overcome to achieve the goal of open access to science.

This conference targets everyone who is interested in Open Science questions. You don’t need to be connected to Umeå University to attend.

About Open Science

The Open Science movement aims to make publicly funded research transparent and all its outputs accessible. Open access to publications has become commonplace for academics today. Open Science goes a step further by striving to make research data, software, and educational materials available to a wider audience, to the extent possible. Additionally, the Open Science movement seeks to change how research is evaluated.

“Open science is defined as an inclusive construct […] aiming to make multilingual scientific knowledge openly available, accessible and reusable for everyone” … (The UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science)
