Introduction to Open Science / Open Science practices
Lecture by Manuela Höfler and Katherine Hermans
"Open science is the movement to make scientific research accessible". That sounds good, but what does that mean? Or even more precise, what does that mean for you? In this very first lecture of the week, we discuss the basics and philosophy of Open Science and why it is important, laying the ground for the rest of the week. The session will be interactive as we would like to hear views and experiences from the participants.
