Open science mini-symposium and workshops by NIOO, DANS and UvA

3 November 2017

DANS and the Netherlands Institute for Ecology (NIOO), together with the Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics (IBED) of the University of Amsterdam, organise on 7 & 8 December a mini-symposium and several workshops about open science, data and tools in ecological and evolutionary research.

Open science has become a scientific mainstream. A substantial intellectual and financial input has been invested into developing e-infrastructures, services, and tools that enable open science, including open data, open source (code) and open access to publications. Current uptake of these elements in ecology and evolution is slow, yet these fields can greatly benefit from the implementation of already developed tools and services.

In the mini-symposium and workshops organised by DANS, NIOO and the University of Amsterdam specialists from different fields will talk about subjects like the archiving of software and algorithms, the use of existing tools and the finding and storage of ecological and evolutionary – whether or not FAIR – data. Both the mini-symposium and workshops are freely admissible and especially the workshops are very well suited for PhD- and postdoctoral researchers at the beginning of their career.
