Open Scholarship Week

NUI Galway will host a virtual ‘Open Scholarship Week’ (OSW2020) with the aim of showcasing the importance of research and education that is accessible to everyone. The event will take place online from 11–15 May.

The current coronavirus pandemic demonstrates the value of open access to scientific research and teaching more than ever. Open Scholarship Week 2020 will look at successful national and international examples of grassroots Open Scholarship enthusiasm and explore how we can use such examples in our local context. We will explore how Open practices translate to different disciplines and how Openness can be used in teaching.  What should the role of universities be in a society that is increasingly networked and open?

All events are free and open to all. Registration is required for all events. Full details and registration is available at: and follow #oswgalway2020 on Twitter.
