Open Science Day

18 October 2019
Forum Rolex

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of EPFL, I wanted to give the important topic of open and reproducible science the place it deserves.

I decided to invite a group of world-class researchers and policy makers and ask them to share their thoughts on several pressing questions.

How can we successfully transition to digital scholarship? What will knowledge production and dissemination resemble in the future?

I would be delighted if you would join our discussion.

Martin Vetterli, President of EPFL

The EPFL Open Science Day is a full-day event that will take place in the main auditorium of the landmark Rolex Learning Center on EPFL Campus.
