In the coming years, Open Science will play an even more important role in education and research and thus will inevitably impact the way we teach and do research in the future. Among other universities in the Netherlands and as a member of 4TU, the University of Twente (UT) is actively involved in furthering and shaping Open Science at the UT.

Against this background, the Open Science Community Twente (OSCT) and the Digital Competence Centre (DCC) launched a series of monthly joint events, the so-called joint OSCT-DCC events. These events take approximately 60 minutes with changing topics that are free for everybody. The goals of these events are to:

Moreover, these events hopefully help to get to know each other better, also across departments.

Since the OSCT is a bottom-up community, you have also power over the events' topics. Hence, feel free to suggest topics that should be discussed and bring in any ideas you have in mind. Just fill out the form and tell us about your idea. This also applies to the monthly newsletter and the blog posts to which you can contribute.

Looking forward to seeing you at one of the upcoming events ;)

Upcoming JOINT OSCT-DCC Events

Space Mission to Open Science

When: 29th February 2024 at 14:00

Where: LA 1208

Speaker: Organizers

At this event, we will give you a brief update on our community goals for 2024. Moreover, we would like to invite you to join us on a space mission to discover and experience Open Science. For this interactive event, please bring your laptop including a headset, camera, and preferably an external mouse, and a pen & paper.


Member initiatives

Contributions from the community are key to the success of our OSCT. We consequently strongly encourage our members to initiate and organize their own events related to Open Science, e.g., workshops and hackathons. Member initiatives will be announced on this website and promoted through social media. If you have an idea in mind, please send us a message.
