Appetizer event on Open Science, October 14, 2022

Appetizer event on Open Science and launch of the INVEST OS Community


We will organize an Appetizer Event on Open Science in October 14, 2022. The event is open for all INVEST affiliated researchers, INVEST visiting scholars, DPINVEST and MPINVEST students and for non-INVEST-affiliated UTU and THL researchers interested to join. We will also launch an INVEST OS Community at the event, which will be part of the wider Open Science Accelerator initiative.

Please save the date and see the preliminary programme below. Our aim is to organize an onsite event but it may be possible that some presentations are available also online. Register by October 7 via Konsta: More information will be delivered to the registered participants before the event.

The workshop (organized at 9:45 – 11:00) is also a compulsory part of the INVEST Doctoral Programme curriculum 2022–2024 and can be used as a substitute for the research thematic workshop from the 2020-2022 curriculum . MDPINVEST Masters Students can also join the workshop and get credits as part of their elective studies. For those who wish to have credits, please register for the event. Enrolment will open in Peppi soon.
