Become an Open Research Champion – information session

There will an information session at 13.00-14.00 on Thursday 17th February for anyone interested in becoming an Open Research Champion.

The University is seeking researchers, members of staff connected with research, and research students (second year onwards) in any discipline who are willing to spend a few hours a month helping to build a culture of Open Research at the University.

As a Champion, you will become part of a collaborative community working to promote open and reproducible research practices.

The main qualifications to be a Champion are enthusiasm for Open Research, and a willingness to learn and share. You don’t need to be an expert – we will provide training ­– but knowledge and skills in specific open practices are welcome.

The call is open for applications until 11th March.

The information session will provide an overview of the Champions programme by Robert Darby, Research Data Manager. Current Champions Auvikki de Boon (PhD student, Agriculture, Policy and Development) and Marzia Briel (Associate Lecturer/PhD student, Law) will discuss their experiences of the programme.
