Eurotech Summer School, EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland - 2-6 September 2019

"Open" is the new black. Everybody talks about open science. But what does it mean exactly?

Open Access, Open Data, Open Source, reproducible science. Jargon or concrete action?

This summer school is for anyone interested in learning how to improve the quality and impact of research. The course will take place over five days, with a large part of the program dedicated to workshops and tutorials to learn useful tips and tricks that will make your life easier. Instructors will present their experience and expertise on how you can adopt open science tools and best practice to your research more efficient, reproducible, visible and impactful.

We bring together established scientists and early career researchers to provide a stimulating, yet friendly, learning environment. No preliminary knowledge of open science is required!

Registration deadline is Friday 19 July 2019, 17:00 CET

2 ECTS for doctoral students
