Let's be honest: The most important room in any department is the kitchen. There you get coffee or tea and meet your colleagues for quick chats about daily life and work. Open Science Kitchen is a series of regular, virtual meetings of around 60 minutes with changing topics that are free to everyone. These meet-ups hopefully help to get to know each other better and across departments. The goals are to
- provide a space to discuss topics in the context of Open Science,
- make people think about Open Science regularly, and
- present current developments people at UT and Saxion University should know about.
However, the OSCT is a bottom-up community. This means that you make the topics. 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 to which you can contribute.
For information regarding the next Open Science Kitchen event, see events.
See you in the kitchen ;).
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.
Open Science Community Kick-off
On the 28th January, we had our first OSCT event. More than 30 participants attended the virtual kick-off session. We discussed what Open Science Communities are, how people can join and contribute, and which topics the participants are interested in. Curious? Check the SLIDES or the recording below.
