Open Science for Researchers
Are you interested in more collaboration with colleagues, students and/or industry? Do you want to be part of a movement that increase the economic and societal impact of fundamental research? Open Science is the free, independent middleman connecting academic research with industrial needs, without compromising the interests of either part. Read further for elaboration.
What is Open Science?
Open Science is a movement. It is about making research reproducible and replicable. It is about eliminating the possibility of duplicating work, because it is hidden behind payment walls and NDAs. It is about being global and create synergistic effects – through collaborations and sharing. You share what is possible, but it is also important to know what results are vital to keep to yourself and your partners.
Why you should do Open Science?
With Open Science your research might have a better chance of creating impact – avoiding research projects ending up in dusty drawers or on the shelf. More and more funders (e.g. the European Commission) expect the results of their sponsored projects to be shared with the public – a natural part of Open Science.
You can let the students share their data from lecture-exercises and course-projects, improving the students’ learnings and knowledge about your topics. You will have a greater chance to become part of interdisciplinary projects and collaborations – meaning greater chance that the research will have an impact on society and not just on paper (impact factor). Collaborating with entrepreneurial students and industry will create more spinout-companies and synergistic projects.
How do you become a member?
Talk to colleagues and industrial partners who are part of Open Science or contact us via email or phone. We will help you initiate your first project(s) in Open Science. You can also sign up for one of the seminars to get a glimpse of the Open Science community.
