National Open Science Festival #OSF2021NL

Meet, Share, Inspire, Care…

On February 11th, around 500 participants tuned into The National Open Science Festival to learn about the benefits of Open Science. Here are our highlights…

Pre-festival workshops

Online Open Source Hardware Building Session

José Carlos Urra Llanusa, Santosh Ilamparuthi, Manuel Garcia, Jerry de Vos, Suryansh Sharma, Jannes Nelissen and Nicolas Barker (TU Delft) hosted a session that gave researchers a hands-on introduction to building and operating open source hardware. The relevant kit and information was mailed to participants ahead of the session to ensure that all participants were ready and prepared to build!


Daniela Gawehns, Kristina Hettne (Leiden University) and helper, Paloma Rojas Saunero (Erasmus MC), taught participants How-To-Reprohack. In breakout sessions, participants tried reproducing a paper in a live-coding session and took the first steps to organising their own reprohack.

Anton Akhmerov, Theoretical Physicist from TU Delft

“We talk about doing things properly when it comes to [open] data and [open source] software… But, already the minimal workflow is better than not sharing. The absolute minimal workflow is ‘ZIP and upload’; you don’t have to do anything else and already it is so much better.”

Community-led sessions

I visited nine of the community-led sessions… What struck me was that a very large percentage of participants were young scientists… You could see that there was an eagerness to be involved, and to learn what Open Science is and what it can offer.
