Call for the Open Initiatives Trophy

Important dates

Close submissions:

6 January


1 February

Award ceremony:

11 February

(Open Science Festival)


With the Open Initiatives Trophy we want to give recognition to teams or individuals who have made efforts to promote Open Science with their peers and in their local communities in the Netherlands. We want to give recognition to those unsung heroes of Open Science!

Do you know (or are you) someone who is involved in an initiative that has helped accelerate the adoption of Open Science? Then we would like to hear from you!

We’d love to learn about fresh new initiatives, but are also interested in the still going strong ideas.

The Open Science Festival programme committee will rank the submissions and grant a prize to the top three initiatives: 500 euro for the winner and 250 euro for the two runners up.

The winners will be announced  at the end of the online Open Science Festival on February 11th 2021.
