FAIR Coffee lecture – Gowri Gopalakrishna

UM is on a mission to become a leading example in the Open Science movement, which aims to make research papers, data, methods, etc. open to anyone so we can all benefit. The FAIR principles go hand-in-hand with Open Science and they form a great guide to make sure that the research you make Open, can actually be used. With the FAIR Coffee lecture series, the Open Science Community of UM, in collaboration with the Community for Data-Driven Initiatives (CDDI), will help you find out more about these topics and discover how your colleagues have applied Open Science and FAIR principles to their research. These lectures are a perfect chance to dip your toes in the FAIR water and find inspiration in the work of others! Coffee/tea and cookies will be waiting for you!

Unfortunately, the lecture of 17 April is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. We are trying to reschedule and will announce this here and through our usual channels as soon as possible. Apologies for the inconvenience!

For this session of the FAIR Coffee lecture, on April 17 2024 at 11 am, we’ve invited Dr. Gowri Gopalakrishna. She is an epidemiologist and public health policy scientist at Maastricht University and member of the Maastricht University Platform for Research Ethics & Integrity. She will give a presentation entitled “Pandemic Science, Open Science and Research Quality” in which she will share some insights on the Covid 19 crisis and how it impacted open science and research quality. More information can be found in the abstract.

The program is as follows:

  • 11.00 A quick introduction on FAIR/Open Science and the FAIR Coffee lecture series
  • 11.10 Main lecture by Gowri Gopalakrishna (Including discussion/questions)
  • 11.55 Closing statement

This session will be a hybrid lecture, which you can either attend in person (location: Paul Henri Spaaklaan 1, room C1.015) or via Zoom (link will be shared in the confirmation email). Please indicate how you will attend by registering on the right side of the page.

See you there!
