Listen to our ORION Open Science podcast now! 


Many researchers and funding bodies are aware of the concepts of Open Science and RRI but going from awareness to actual application in daily research activities is a big step. For many, taking this step seems impossible due to real or perceived constraints of basic research or funding policies. To lower the threshold for application, we aim to provide training in RRI and Open Science concepts and tools, and show how these can be applied in fundamental research and funding processes and decisions.

You will find our training materials here on or website or you can download the material from Zenodo.

The ORION Training has gone digital, read about the ORION MOOC for Open Science in the Life Sciences here. You can also follow the self-paced course on the Open Learn Create platform.
