GLOBAL SHOWCASE 2020
We’re excited to announce our first Global Showcase event, which will take place online from 28 Sept to 2 Oct (half-day sessions). We’ll be discussing the biggest challenges facing research and sharing stories about the many ways our digital research tools are helping the research community.
This online event will be accessible to you regardless of your location. If your timezone doesn’t allow you to join live, don’t worry – you can catch up at your leisure, as a recording will be available for all registrants immediately after every session ends.
About the event
Our showcase is free to attend and will be broadcast across five half days allowing you to tailor your attendance by choosing from a range of sessions based around these themes:
Getting to know the Digital Science family of digital tools (Monday 28 September):
Hear snappy lightning talks from each of our digital tools about what they do and who they help: Dimensions, Overleaf, Altmetric, Figshare, Symplectic, ReadCube, Ripeta, IFI Claims, Scismic, Gigantum, GRID, Digital Science Consultancy and CC Technology.
Collaboration (Tuesday 29 September):
Discover how our research tools are enabling members of the research community to work together openly and collaboratively.
Research Culture (Wednesday 30 September):Find out how we are working with our partners to push for an inclusive, open, and efficient research culture.
Truth & Trust (Thursday 1 October):In order to build trust in research we require transparency of our actions. In these sessions we will be discussing accountability and responsibility in research.
Global Challenges (Friday 2 October):While the current pandemic has connected the world in ways we could never have imagined possible, there remain many other global challenges for researchers to solve. These sessions will deliver an insight into how our tools and analyses are contributing to research successes in the face of various global challenges.
End of day networking sessions will also ensure you get to know us and your fellow attendees throughout the week. To find out more about how the event will run please view our FAQs for attendees.
