Working Open Workshop 2017, Paris

November 30th, December 1st

At this Working Open Workshop (WOW), Institut Pasteur and the Mozilla Science Lab are co-organizing a two-day event focused on Open Science. On day one of the WOW, Institut Pasteur will host a series of talks related to open science practice and tools for open collaboration. On day two, Mozilla Science Lab staff, Fellows and community will run a set of trainings to help prepare open science projects for project mentorship at the Institut Pasteur. This website will serve as a resource for all sessions materials.


Day 1: Open Science Conference

The life cycle of Open Science encompasses all steps of scientific research: from hypothesis generation, to literature review, to data collection, to data analyses and finally to publication of results.

During this one-day conference, we would like to bring to the limelight some of these life cycle steps with special emphasis on collaborative platforms and tools that can be used to do open science.

The conference day is open to people working at Institut Pasteur but also to the general public. Follow the link HERE to register for the event and select the appropiate ticket (Pasteur or General public). Registration opens on October 13th!
