On September 28, 2018, the Natural History Museum in London organized the annual European Researchers’ Night. This year the theme was “Planet 2.0“. In this event Mattias represented qBionano at the Science Pub. Read more below and see photos from the night.
On September 21, a half-day workshop was held at Imperial College London to discuss the changing landscape of research assessment. The workshop was introduced by Prof Nick Jennings, followed by presentations from Prof Stephen Curry on DORA (slides here) and Dr Lizzie Gadd on responsible metrics, before finishing with a panel discussion which also included Dr Karen Rowlett, Dr John Tregoning and qBionano’s Dr Mattias Björnmalm. This panel discussion was chaired by Prof Chris Jackson.
The full workshop is available on Imperial College London’s YouTube channel:
On September 17-18, the Vitae Researcher Development International Conference 2018 was held in Birmingham. As part of this meeting, qBionano’s Mattias helped organize a workshop on the topic of “Healthy and supportive environments for PhD candidates: paving the way for good practices“.
The future of open science is high on the agenda right now since the introduction of a new plan last week describing the future of open access in Europe. In this blog post, qBionano’s Mattias discusses these recent developments. Our previous 1-step guide on how to make your research freely (and legally) available may also be of interest.
Researcher from qBionano and collaborators have just published a new paper in Nature Nanotechnology. In this paper, a new “minimum reporting standard” for bio–nano science is introduced, called MIRIBEL.
