The RKEO have developed networks with several regional universities in order to share best practice, link up collaborations for research, and share events.
A few places remain for research academics to attend the conference Open in Practice: Inspirations, Strategies and Methods for Open Research at the University of Reading on 30th March. The full conference programme and registration information can be found at http://bit.ly/2jGTwbc.
An opportunity for researchers to learn about and discuss:
– Open Science solutions to the reproducibility crisis (http://bit.ly/2m2SO74)
– Digital methods for the humanities
Open in Practice is a free conference on the theme of Open Research for researchers in the sciences and the humanities, hosted by the University of Reading. A small number of places at the conference are available to members of the research community outside of Reading.
