EPFL Summer School Open Science in Practice 2017 | FOSTER

Please notice: Deadline for applications is on Friday 11th of August 2017

"Open" is the new black. Everybody talks about it, but nobody knows what it really means.

This course will explain where open science comes from and will give an overview of latest tools researchers can use to be more efficient, more visible and more relevant in their community.

How to use 21st century writing and publishing methods? How to best generate and share data? How to document and keep track with versions of your code? These will be some of the questions that will be answered by the panel of talented young researchers contributing to the event.

The summer school is aimed at early career researchers who are interested in learning more about what academic research will look like in the future. The core idea behind this summer school is to propose a pragmatic approach to Open Science that addresses what early career researchers care about:

Having access to the necessary training, tools and information sources to conduct their research in an optimal way.
Increasing the quality and visibility of their contributions to science.
Learning best practices in the field of publication, data life cycle management, and software publishing.
Getting credit for their work, enabling collaborations, and increasing reuse and impact.
