▶️ A recording of this event is available on Replay (UoY login required)


This was an opportunity to reflect upon what we have achieved in the past two years as an open research community of practice, share ideas and plans on where we are going next, and discuss what challenges we still need to address across all disciplines at the University. It was also an opportunity to highlight a selection of projects from our recent York Open Research Awards scheme.
