OLS-8 Open Seeds Mentoring & Training Programme - Open for Applications!

The next cohort of Open Seeds OLS-8 is open for application!

Open Seeds is a Mentoring & Training Programme run by OLS, designed for people interested in applying open principles in their work and becoming Open Science ambassadors in their communities. The program is free but requires registration in OpenReview and an application with a project where you would like to apply open skills. More information: https://openlifesci.org/

The deadline to apply is on July 7th, with a decision made in August and the cohort starting in mid-September 2023. On the 28th of June OLS will run an open webinar “Application Clinic (Q&A)” where interested participants can ask the OLS team any questions about their applications to the program.

If you have not thought about a project and application, this can be an excellent opportunity to learn more about the program and get inspired https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/application-clinic-call-qa-tickets-660976427287.
