KRECon 2021 Invitation

1 November 2021

Invitation to the KRECon 2021 conference

The KRECon Conference is organized by National Library of Technology (NTK) and National Centre for Electronic Information Resources (CzechELib) in cooperation with Eurodoc.

This year KRECon conference aims at bringing together international and national experts, researchers and high level actors in R&D&I and provide them a  platform to discuss various aspects of challenges and opportunities of Open Science in the Czechia and in Europe. 

The first day of the conference is dedicated to international top-level expert guest speakers who will present the transition and progress towards Open Science in Europe and reflect on the key challenges and opportunities which Open Science brings along.

The second day will focus on how far we are with implementation of Open Science in the Czech landscape, about development of National Open Science strategy, and will discuss barriers and concerns and possible solutions with the top Czech R&D&I representatives. 

The conference will be preceded by two parallel workshops: “Eurodoc workshop on Open Science for Early Career Researchers” and “Open Science Train-the-Trainer session” for all those who support Open Science at institutions (institution managers, Open Science coordinators, data stewards, ...).

The idea of the workshops is to bring together ambitious, inspired young people who might create a proactive network across the country to encourage learning and collaboration on Open Science practices. Participants will benefit from sharing experience and best practices with (international) experts, networking, and foundation for career development in case of (early-career) researchers.

The language of the conference will be English on the 1st day (Thursday), and Czech on the 2nd day (Friday) with simultaneous translation to English.

The KRECon 2021 conference and both workshops are free of charge. 

Due to pandemic measures, the number of physical participants may be limited, so it is advisable to register to reserve your seats.
