Sign in
February 08, 2023

📍 CRM Auditorium

Registration deadline 05 / 02 / 2023


This workshop will be broadcast via ZOOM (the relevant link will be provided to registered participants), but CRM PhD candidates and postdocotral researchers are expected to attend in person. 


The CRM will host the workshop Open Science: From Policy to Practice on 8th February 2023. The workshop will be hosted as a face-to-face event mainly aimed at CRM faculty, and it will be mandatory as a training session for the PhD students and postdoctoral fellows.

Open science encompasses a series of practices that aim at making the cycle of scientific knowledge production and dissemination more transparent, collaborative and accessible to society.  It includes open access, FAIR data, transparent metrics and evaluation, and citizen science.

The reform on the Spanish Science Law, Horizon Europe and the Catalan Science Law has defined a new environment in 2022, boosting open science. Upskilled profiles are needed to accompany the research staff in this changing scenario, as well as an adaptation of processes and infrastructures. There is a growing demand for training and updating of research and support staff to which this workshop aims to respond.

The workshop will present CRM Open Science policy and support as well as provide practical training to adapt to such changes, in the context of mathematically-oriented research and the infrastructures in the Catalan science and innovation system.

Two sessions by the co-leaders of the Working Group of Open Science of Severo Ochoa and Maria de Maeztu Network (SOMMA) will guide us in the topic. An online seminar by the the Spanish Agency for the Evaluation of Quality of Research (ANECA) will be scheduled to complement training on this topic.

NOTE: The two sessions by the SOMMA Working Group will be hybrid. Please register and the Zoom link will be forwarded to you if interested.
