Open Life Science (OLS) is a 16-week long personal mentorship and cohort-based training for individuals who would like to develop and lead Open Research projects in their communities. OLS will open a call for mentors and project leads from EOSC RIs for their third cohort, which is expected to take place from February-May 2021. In each cohort, the participants of this program will:
share their expertise and gain knowledge essential to create, lead, and sustain an Open Science project
connect with members across different projects, communities, backgrounds, and identities
empower each other to become effective Open Science ambassadors in their communities
Open Life Science has received the EOSC-Life Training grant (first round), to train and mentor EOSC-RI members under the collaboration name OLS-3 for EOSC. This program will provide a unique opportunity to individuals and teams to integrate best practices for open and reproducible research in new or ongoing projects. They will also offer microgrants to our participants to ensure that they can equitably participate in the program (see this post for details). You are welcome to attend the graduation calls from 15-17 December 2021 to find more about projects from the previous round and join their Q&A webinar on 4 January 2021 to ask specific questions you may have.
Who is this call for:
Project leads/mentees: People interested to lead any projects they are working on or want to develop. They can be early-career researchers, support staff, business and core team members, community and project managers etc.
Mentors: People with background or experience in Open Science who would like to support project leads/mentees
Experts: People interested in providing support, provide learning materials, consultation to our mentees or speak at the calls
