Google English: "Figshare Fest in Utrecht University Library
On Tuesday 12 June, the Utrecht University Library will be dominated by Figshare Fest Netherlands 2018. Figshare is a platform for data storage.
In the morning there are keynotes from Mark Hahnel (Figshare) and Daniel Oberski (Utrecht University). Mark Hahnel is the CEO of Figshare, a platform for data storage. Hahnel set up this platform while he was working on his PhD (Biology) at Imperial College London. He is a great advocate of open science. During Figshare fest he tells us what happened at Figshare in the past six months and what will happen in the coming six months.
Daniel Oberski is an associate professor in Methodology & Statistics at the Department of Social Sciences. As a member of the Utrecht Young Academy, he is an advocate of open science. Scientific information is often screened off by a payment wall. According to Oberski, this hinders good science. "Open science is just good science."
In the afternoon there are workshops. Attention is paid to specific use cases of figshare. The University of Amsterdam uses it as a research data management platform, while Utrecht University is committed to sharing educational material (open). In addition, Sanli Faez (assistant professor at the Department of Physics & Astronomy) talks about the challenges of an open research practice. He does this on the basis of the new podcast series The road to open science that Utrecht Young Academy and Utrecht University Library produce together.
Figshare fest takes place from 10-16 hours in the University Library Uithof. This day is open to lecturers and researchers, supporters for lecturers and researchers from a policy, library or ICT department, and everyone connected to a research institute, college or university.
