ORION MOOC for Open Science in the Life Sciences 2.0

10 Feb 2020 to 16 Mar 2020

The ORION MOOC for Open Science in the Life Sciences 2.0  is a live course for life sciences and biomedical researchers that will start on 10th February 2020 and running for 6 weeks. Its purpose is to helps scientists share their research with the world more effectively.

This year the ORION Open Science project is going to run an improved version of their highly successful and positively reviewed online course from last year.  Easily digestible modules will explore different aspects of Open Science and allow life sciences researchers to gain an Open Science Expert Certificate, with prizes for the most active participants. Researchers will learn online with many interactive elements and loads of multimedia content. Each week will have a specific focus and give an insight to the different aspects of Open Science.

Modules will include:

  • Open Access and Publishing
  • Research Data Management and FAIR Data
  • Science Communication and Public Engagement

The two models on research data management and on FAIR data, in particular, teach important skills on how to do a data management plan, how to share data, how to license data, the difference between FAIR and Open Data, etc. In addition, the whole course promotes best research practice and RRI principles.

These modules only require 90–120 mins per week but will enable scientists to become more effective, confident, and skilled researchers. s.
