Max Planck PhDnet in collaboration with Max Planck Digital Library  are relaunching the Open Access Ambassadors program under the new name Open Science Ambassadors (OSA)

The objectives of the OSA program are…

  • To train early career researchers from the Max Planck Society (MPS) on open science in order to share and distribute knowledge throughout and beyond the MPS.
  • To promote the integration of principles of openness and transparency into the standard research workflow of early career researchers.
  • To push for real changes and a sustainable transition towards open science in the long term within and beyond the MPS.

We will get started with a one-day virtual event on October 18th, 2021. In this first event, we will introduce the program and experts from all over the Max Planck Society will share their views and experience regarding Open Science!

So if you want to know more about Open Science or you are interested in learning how to implement it in your own research, you should consider to join this first event!
