Let's Discuss the Open Science Guide for Early-Career Researchers

When: 30th November 2023 at 14:00

Where: Skills Lab (SL) 3, Vrijhof Building (Floor 2)

Speaker: Roberto Cruz Martinez (UT-LISA) 


Did you know that in April this year a practical guide on Open Science was published? This guide is aimed at PhD candidates, Research Master Students, and early-career researchers from all disciplines at Dutch universities and research institutes. It is designed to accompany researchers in every step of their research. In this event, we would like to discuss with you the guide, particularly the first two sections of it:

We expect participants to read the sections above, which in total are only 11 pages of content, including interesting visuals and linked resources that we can discover together. The discussion will be facilitated by a moderator, so no more preparation is required. Come and share your own experiences and insights!

The future of the OSCT

When: 28th September 2023 at 14:00 - 16:00

Where: Grand Café The Gallery

Speaker: Raul Zurita Milla


The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has launched a call for funding for Open Science Communities. At this event we will give a presentation about our future goals for the OSCT and how we plan to achieve these goals with the help of the NWO funding. As we want to take OS forward as a community, we kindly invite you to (critically) discuss our plan and goals. 


Citizen Science and the Citizen Science Hub Twente

When: 25th May 2023 at 14:00 - 15:00

Where: MS Teams (online)

Speaker: Representatives of the CS Hub Twente


This event will be about Citizen Science (CS) and the CS Hub Twente. Specifically, representatives of the CS Hub Twente will give a short presentation about the CS Hub and share insights of their first network and exchange meeting on CS. Subsequently, we will engage a discussion about the needs of the UT community when it comes to CS and how the OSCT, OS in general, and the library can contribute to this. 

How to create and publish FAIR research datasets directly from your research environment?

When: 20th April 2023 at 14:00 - 15:30

Where: Learn-X (DesignLab)

Speaker: Serkan Girgin (ITC)


Abstract: The FAIR principles require research data to be published with complete metadata and ideally shared at different key milestones during the research. However currently, data publication and sharing happen mostly at the end, and published data mostly lack important supplementary information and metadata limiting its reusability. On the other hand, regular high-quality data publication takes time and requires manual interaction with the data repositories.

Virtual research environments facilitate research data production; however, although they are well connected to some research infrastructure, e.g., code repositories, their interoperability with research data repositories is weak. Open-source fairly toolset aims to bridge this gap by enabling easy research data publication directly from the research environment. The toolset, which includes a JupyterLab extension, a command-line tool, and a Python library, allows quick research data cloning, local data and metadata management, unattended upload of large datasets, and smart synchronization with remote data repositories with minimum effort.

During the talk the fairly toolset will be introduced, and its features will be demonstrated by creating and uploading research datasets to popular research data repositories, such as Zenodo, figshare, and 4TU.ResearchData.


Open Science and Recognition & Rewards need each other

When: 30th March 2023 at 14:00 - 15:00 (online)

Speaker: Sander Bosch (OS coordinator VU Amsterdam)

Abstract: There is a lot of momentum for both a more transparent and inclusive way of working in academia (Open Science) and a more fairly balanced system of Recognition & Rewards that does justice to the multitude of roles and tasks in academia. In this talk, I will reflect on how Open Science and Recognition & Rewards relate to each other in the context of a university, drawing from experiences from local (VU) and national Open Science programmes and Recognition & Rewards initiatives.

Shaping Open Science

When: 23rd February 2023 at 15:00

Speaker: Raúl Zurita-Milla (OSCT), Wendy van Ginkel (DCC), Michiel de Boer (NLRN) & Maria Cruz (NWO)

Open Science will play an even more important role in education and research and will inevitably impact the way we teach and do research. The Shaping Open Science event highlights the national Open Science movement, as well as how Open Science will shape the landscape of research and education.
