ORION Open Science Final Conference

Event date
September 27-28, 2021
Short description

Join the final ORION Open Science Conference on 27-28 September to learn about and discuss achievements and lessons learned throughout the ORION project from 2017 to 2021. The conference is free of charge and open to anyone interested in Open Science and RRI practices, and its future national and international implications.


At the heart of the ORION Open Science EU-project is the ambition to open up the way we fund, organise and conduct life science research. During the project lifetime we have developed and tested a wide range of engagement methods, funding schemes, training materials and co-creation activities to engage the public in science. Achievements, tools and lessons learned will be shared.

Join the discussions and meet speakers from partner organisations and representatives from leading national and European organisations like Marta Agostinho, EU-Life, Rachel Bruce, UKRI, Cecilia Cabello, FECYT, Claudia Colonello, Knowledge & Innovation, Mihaela Costache, European Commission, Kostas Glinos, European Commission, Pilar Gayoso Diz, Instituto de Salud Carlos III, Karel Luyben, Delft University, Peter Rugg-Gunn, Babraham Institute, Ignasi López Verdeguer, "la Caixa" Foundation, and Ana Peršić, UNESCO.
