To kick off the new academic year, we hosted an introduction event where we (re)introduced ourselves to students that were potentially interested in joining SIOS, or learning about open science in general. We give an overview of what we do and what our goals are, and then we split up into break out rooms to discuss upcoming projects and roles that new members could take on. We managed to pick up a few members through this event, and now we even have members that are not based in the Netherlands – I guess that’s at least one advantage of everything being online now 🙂
