If you think that building a sailing boat at a kindergarten in a small village of the South Moravian lowlands in Czech Republic is a nonsense, then you are wrong! It’s a part of the ORION partner JCMM’s EduSTEM (Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) programme, which aims to inspire the future generation of researchers and innovators.
“What an exciting potential future for science!” commented one of the participants in the ORION MOOC for Open Science in Life Sciences, when discussing what they had learnt from the course. The ORION MOOC course ran for six weeks from October-November 2019 and was open for anyone interested in Open Science. A new MOOC will run again in early 2020.
Open Science is about making research more accessible to society. But how do we get there and what obstacles are in the way? These were the questions raised at a seminar arranged by the ORION partner VA (Public & Science) at the Almedalen Week in Sweden on 2 July.
Are you an Open Science advocate or enthusiast? Do you want to help others practice Open Science? The ORION Open Science Train-the-Trainer is an online course which enables its participants to deliver Open Science training in a variety of contexts. Through online seminars, meet-ups, videos, group work and more, the participants acquire skills in the theory and methods of Open Science training.
The registration for the ORION MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) for Open Science in the Life Sciences has now opened. This brand new online course will help researchers to share their science with the world! Easily digestible modules will explore different aspects of Open Science and allow researchers in life sciences to gain a certificate in Open Science.
Dr. Emma Martinez-Sanchez, Public Engagement Project Officer for ORION Open Science at the Babraham Institute, brought the ORION project to the Engage Conference poster party and found inspiration elsewhere…
Due to the success and popularity of the ORION MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) from last year, an improved version of the course will run again. The ORION MOOC for Open Science in the Life Sciences 2.0 will be live from February 10th 2020. Registration is now open!
At the beginning of November 2019, the Berlin Science Week connected science communities with the general public. Luiza Bengtsson and Emma Harris from the ORION Training team at Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) held an Open Science workshop and discussed "Why everyone should care about open science".
