Open Science Webinars for MLU Postgraduate Students – 2020


Come join us on a journey through the starting points of Open Science (OS). This webinar series is aimed at (but not restricted to) Postdocs and PhD students from different backgrounds and disciplines at the MLU. We want to talk to you about the possibilities and benefits of Open Science, which might help you at this earlier career stage. In seven web sessions, we will introduce you to a variety of OS topics, including an introduction to Open Science, data protection, legal and intellectual property rights, research data management, open educational resources (OER) etc.


We will use the MLU conference system MLUconf for delivering the webinars. You don’t need to register, just join us on the day and participate.

The webinars will typically last 45 minutes with at least 15 minutes reserved for discussion and for answering questions from participants. The presentation will be available for consultation at a latter point via the Open Science website of the ULB.
