Open Science Communities

Open Science Communities are independent, bottom up local communities comprising members of various scientific disciplines and career stages, who want to learn more about Open Science. The local OSC is the place where newcomers to Open Science can learn from their colleagues. Below you can find the list of Dutch OSCs.

OSCs organize activities, such as workshops and symposia. Next to being learning communities on all aspects of Open Science, they also provide input on policy, infrastructure and services. The first OSC started in 2018 in Utrecht. In 2021 there is an active OSC at almost all Dutch universities. Their example is also followed abroad. All Open Science Communities are united in the International Network of Open Science Communities (INOSC) that continues to grow.
