Join us for the first ever HYBRID data conversation!

As part of a series of events during Data Horror Week 2021, research staff, research students, and research support staff, from across the Netherlands are invited to the following hybrid Open Science event, organized jointly by VU Amsterdam and Leiden University Libraries:

Improving science through openness, revealing hidden secrets


  • Opening from VU Amsterdam
  • Gowri Gopalakrishna, VU Amsterdam Pandemic Science, Speed Science & Open Science : how can we safeguard research integrity in the future of science?
  • Eiko Fried, Leiden University Sharing is caring: improving transparency in research
  • Closure and introduction to networking from Leiden University

You can choose to attend the event in Amsterdam, in Leiden, or online from the comfort of your own home or office, making this our first hybrid (online and physical) data conversation.

Projectors in the meeting rooms in Leiden and Amsterdam will bring all participants together during the main event for a combined experience – whether you’re online or physically present. For those who attend the event in person, the main event will be followed by a networking event with drinks. For online attendees, the networking will take the form of a moderated discussion.

Don't miss the chance to feel part of the broader Open Science Community of the Netherlands.

Register here now and choose to come in-person or to join online. 

Registration closes for the in-person event on Friday 22 October. The registration form for online participation will remain open up to the end of Wednesday 27th October.
An email with further details will be sent to all registered participants.

  • Gowri Gopalakrishna is an epidemiologist by training who was involved in the control and containment of the SARS outbreak in Singapore in 2003. In her current role as lead researcher on the Dutch National Survey on Research Integrity (NSRI2020), she has been leading the design, implementation and analysis of results of one of the world’s largest surveys on research integrity. She was featured in the Dutch media extensively in 2020 on her SARS experience and later on the impact of speed science, open science and research integrity during the Covid pandemic.
  • Eiko Fried is a psychologist, methodologist, and nearly photographer. He obtained his PhD in clinical psychology at the Free University of Berlin, followed by four years of postdoctoral training in methodology. He returned to clinical psychology in 2018, and today works as Associate Professor at Leiden University. Eiko’s research takes place at the intersection of clinical psychology, psychiatry, epidemiology, methodology, and complexity science, and he enjoys dabbling in philosophy of science. His interests are how to best understand, measure, model, and classify mental health problems—and in improving cumulative psychological science through open science practices. Eiko loves burnt coffee and fast computers, and is humbled to get to work with many fantastic researchers from all over the world.
