KU Leuven Open Science day 2023

The Open Science day is the KU Leuven event where researchers share experiences about Open Science.

  • Open to all KU Leuven researchers (PhD students, postdocs, professors)

  • Date: 2 May (9 am - 5 pm)

  • Hybrid event: online & in Leuven (Irish College)

Open Science is an inclusive construct that combines various movements and practices aiming to make multilingual scientific knowledge openly available, accessible and reusable for everyone, in order to increase scientific collaborations and sharing of information for the benefits of science and society, and to open the processes of scientific knowledge creation, evaluation and communication to societal actors beyond the traditional scientific community, becoming also a sign of the wider digital transition in society.

This year's programme will be very rich, with presentations and posters from scholars with diverse backgrounds: early career researchers and professors, from humanities, biomedical science, engineering and technology.

Presentations by Muki Haklay, Professor of Geographic Information Science at University College London, Thomas Margoni and Roberta Pireddu, of the Literary Theory and Cultural Studies group, will be held during the event.
