Do you organise Open Science trainings yourself or are planning to do so? On this page you can find a set of materials that offer some inspiration or help you to get started in the first place. Take a look and adapt or re-use the resources for your own trainings.
This handbook, with translations in several languages, brings together methods, techniques and practices, to support educators of Open Science to create high quality and engaging training. It is available under Creative Commons Public Domain Dedication (CC0 1.0 Universal) so you do not have to ask our permission to re-use and copy information from this handbook.

During the book sprint the artist Patrick Hochstenbach draw more than 100 icons and cartoons to illustrate the Open Science training handbook. They are now for you available under Creative Commons Public Domain Dedication (CC0 1.0 Universal) to re-use freely.
