Learn more about Open Research (and get a free lunch!)

1-4pm Wednesday 6th November (with lunch from 1-1:30pm)

Library Presentation Room

Join us for lunch followed by a brief foray into open research practices and approaches! If you are interested in making your research more visible, increasing impact, enabling collaboration, making the research process more transparent or sharing your work so others can reuse it… then this is the workshop for you. We’ll be looking at what ‘being more open’ in research means, discussing examples and considering what some of the benefits and challenges are.

This workshop will:

  • Look at different stages of the research process and what being ‘open’ means within these contexts;
  • Provide practical advice and suggestions;
  • Discuss the challenges and benefits of being more open research;
  • Give you an exciting range of next steps to continue your open research journey

The workshop will end with a presentation on responsible research and innovation and how this fits with open research.

Lunch and refreshments are kindly being sponsored by the EU-funded project Fostering Improved Training Tools for Responsible Research and Innovation (FIT4RR). Lunch will be from 1-1:30pm and the workshop will begin at 1:30pm.
