In April 2019, FOSTER co-organised no less than three train-the-trainer bootcamps. As the project has now ended, these were the last ones we gave in this format, and we went out with a bang!
The idea behind this bootcamp is not to give training about open science as such, but rather to train the participants (who are open science experts themselves) to pass on their experience, knowledge and skills to others - and also to learn from their colleagues' experiences.
About the bootcamp in The Hague you can read more here.

Open Science has climbed on the EC agenda in recent years. It touches aspect from skills of future researchers to societal impact of public funded research, and conflict and synergies with standard practices for commercialization of research. The current draft of EC’s next multi-billion Research & Innovation funding framework, Horizon EUROPE, even dedicates an entire pillar to it, with the ambition to change research culture throughout.
