Open Research


Open Research at Cambridge 2021 

The Open Research at Cambridge conference will run online, from 22 - 26 November 2021. 

Research takes place in collaborative networks, tied together by publications, conferences, informal discussions and often data sharing. Approach all stages of research more openly will facilitate collaboration and the incremental growth of ideas. Breaking down the walls around information will enable more stakeholders, both lay and professional, to become involved and deepen their trust in research. 

This series of events, for the Cambridge community, is an opportunity to discuss the practice of open research in a variety of contexts.
