National eScience Symposium 2019 to cover Digital Challenges in Open Science


9 May 2019 Amsterdam - The Netherlands eScience Center will organize its 6th annual symposium, with this year's specific focus on Digital Challenges in Open Science. The symposium will be held on November 21, 2019 at the Johan Cruijff ArenA, Amsterdam.

The Dutch National eScience Symposium is a one-day event where academic researchers, industry representatives and policy makers from various disciplines meet. The focus is on the application of innovative digital technologies for the advancement of Open Science.

According to the European Commission "Open Science represents a new approach to the scientific process based on cooperative work and new ways of diffusing knowledge by using digital technologies and new collaborative tools. The idea captures a systemic change to the way science and research have been carried out for the last fifty years: shifting from the standard practices of publishing research results in scientific publications towards sharing and using all available knowledge at an earlier stage in the research process". The 2017 Coalition Agreement of the Dutch cabinet states that very soon "Open Science will be the norm in scientific research".

The systematic change of the practice of science is made possible only by a close collaboration between practitioners, policy makers, and the designers and developers of new digital solutions and tools. In particular, the role of research software and support is essential. The 2019 National eScience Symposium is an opportunity for anyone working in academia, industry, research funding, research publishing, and research policy to engage in fruitful discussions with advanced technology experts. It is the place for knowledge exchange on these topics, and to help shape and define the future of Open Science.

The symposium will feature thematic sessions showcasing world-class research and digital developments around Open Science. More details regarding these sessions will follow soon.

Each year young and ambitious researchers can participate in the Young eScientist Award competition. The award aims to stimulate a young scientist demonstrating excellence in eScience: the development or application of digital technology to address scientific challenges. The Netherlands eScience Center awards 50.000 euro worth of expertise to the winner. At the symposium the Young eScientist 2019 will be announced. Would you like to get motivated to participate this year? You can ead the winning research idea of 2018 by Esther Bron .

Detailed information regarding the programme, as well as registration and logistical arrangements will be announced soon.

The Preliminary Programme looks like this:

  • 09:00 - 09:45: Registration & Coffee
  • 09:45 - 10-00: Welcome by Director Netherlands eScience Center
