Open Science Fishbowl (on-site only)

How it works:

A few seats will be placed in the middle of the room, and filled by a few volunteers in the middle. A couple of seats will be left empty. The remaining guests will congregate around the seats in the middle of the room.

Participants sat in the middle will begin to discuss led by a moderator. After some discussion has taken place another person may join an empty chair at which time one person already seated must voluntarily leave.

The main discussion in this fishbowl will be about:

Implementing Open Science Practices in Research: Who does what? And why? And Who is responsible to check that Open Science is done right?
