Exploring Open Science: Overview from ENGAGE.EU Data Management Days

From 6 to 8 March 2024, University Toulouse Capitole had the pleasure to welcome researchers, doctoral students, and support staff from the 9 partners of the Alliance. These Data Management Days served as a seamless continuation of our ongoing efforts at the university to advance the discourse surrounding research data management, which already includes the implementation of specialized courses and collaborative workshops with library staff.

The unique feature of the event organised in Toulouse was the variety of profiles welcomed, enabling us to broaden discussions, identify common issues more precisely and work together on the best way to support researchers in this area.

A round table open to all, entitled “Why engage in open science practices?“, moderated by Christine Okret-Manville, Director of Libraries at Paris Dauphine-PSL, brought together the following speakers:

  •     Julien Bétaille, lecturer at Toulouse Capitole University, IEJUC,
  •     Valérie Orozco, statistics/econometrics engineer at INRAE since 2004 and member of the TSE Industrial Organisation group,
  •     Klaas Stijsma, researcher at Tilburg, author of the book Never Waste a Good Crisis. Lessons Learned from Data Fraud and Questionable Research Practices

This round table delved into the theoretical underpinnings of Open Science, setting the stage for a subsequent half-day discussion on the accessibility of Theses and Wikipedia, and its alignment with Open Science principles.

This event marks a significant step towards the establishment of an ENGAGE.EU network dedicated to the promotion of Open Science and the enhancement of research data management practices.
