Open Research at York events fortnight (7-17 May 2024)

...

Join members of the York research community at the end of semester for an exciting and inspiring series of open research aligned events. The programme covers a diverse set of practices, topics and formats including training workshops, discussion groups and research showcases. These events aim to be collaborative and accessible, with relevance to researchers at different levels and across disciplines. Most sessions will take place in-person at locations around campus and are open to all students, PGRs and staff at York.

The events series also coincides with the announcement of this year’s Open Research Awards recipients. The awards scheme is open for submissions until 22 April and provides an opportunity to celebrate projects and initiatives across all disciplines which engage with, reflect upon, or advocate for open research practices and principles.
