your field of research? Are you annoyed by open access fees?

Have you heard about open science, but would like to know more? Did you
always want to ask something about open science in an informal setting?
Or do you have strong opinions which you would like to share with others
at the Faculty of Science and Engineering?

Come to our first *FSE Open Science Get-together*!

When?  Wednesday *20 November 16:00 – 17:30*

Where?  Room 5173.0151, Linnaeusborg, Zernike

What?
– a very short introduction to open science
– discussion: Do we need more open science at the FSE?

As members of the new Open Science Community Groningen
(https://openscience-groningen.nl)we want to start a regular meeting
about everything related to open science, with a focus on the Faculty of
Science and Engineering. In the future we hope to be a place for
discussion and a journal club in the tradition of
https://reproducibilitea.org/.

Everybody is welcome and we look forward to see you!
