Open Science Ambassador Training

The Open Science movement aims to open up the entire research cycle so that research designs, methods, data, and the results are publicly available. Open Science is a priority for the European Union, which is one of the main funders of research. Requirements to open up research products (publications & data, for the moment) are very common/compulsory in many EC grant applications, but not only.

Course Curriculum

Each module is made up of an online tutorial on the FOSTER portal and a webinar with an expert on a specific topic of Open Science. The modules specifically address Open Source
