Apply now for the Open Science Retreat / 25 – 29 March 2024 / Schoorl, the Netherlands

We are thrilled to invite you to the 2nd edition of the Open Science Retreat, from the 25th to the 29th of March, 2024 in Schoorl, the Netherlands. After a successful first German edition, organised by Heidi Seibold, this year the Netherlands Open Science Communities (OSC-NL) are in the lead. Join us for a week in which researchers from various disciplines come together to share knowledge, experiences, and best practices related to open science in the serene surroundings of dunes, a fairytale forest and the sea, the perfect backdrop for teamwork,  one-on-one talks, creativity and rejuvenation.

How to participate?

To join the Open Science Retreat, you can apply here. If you apply before December 1st, we will get back to you before the end of the year to let you know if your application is accepted. We welcome researchers at all stages of their careers. No prior experience with open science is required—just an eagerness to learn, share, and contribute.

Due to support via the NWO Open Science Fund, we have been able to keep costs relatively low for all. There is also a stipend fund to lower participation costs to 200,- for those who have difficulties to get reimbursement via their institution, mainly aimed at Early Career Researchers.

Why should you attend?

• Learn from peers who will share their insights and experiences in open science and build valuable collaborations. Be prepared to be inspired and challenged!

• Participate in a hands-on unconference style team in the mornings to develop practical skills in open science methodologies.

• Engage in thought-provoking discussions around the challenges and opportunities in implementing open science practices. Your voice matters!

• Benefit from coaching and join our mentoring scheme.
