Open Science Day
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 detailed program will be unveiled soon. In the meantime, save the date in your calendar!
This full-day event will take place in the main auditorium of the landmark Rolex Learning Center on EPFL Campus.
Open science is a complex and transversal topic that can only be understood when a variety of point of views collide. We invited world-class researchers and policy makers, from both sides of the Atlantic, to give their perspective on the promises and challenges of open and reproducible science.
We are honored to confirm that the following people have accepted our invitation to share their expertise with the participants:
Sir Philip Campbell, Editor-in-Chief Springer Nature
Ingrid Daubechies, Duke University
Fabiola Gianotti, CERN Director-General
Maria Leptin, EMBO Director
José Moura, IEEE President Elect
Fernando Perez, University of California Berkeley
Robert-Ian Smits, TU/e Executive Board President
Marcel Salathé, EPFL
