#OSFAIR2023: Registration now open! 

The highly anticipated OpenAIRE initiative is making its grand return in Madrid, Spain, from September 25 to 27

The 4th edition of the Open Science Fair is co-organized by OpenAIRE and the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT), our Spanish NOAD. We take immense pride in being one of the key Open Science events under the auspices of the Spanish Presidency of the Council of the European Union.  

With the theme "Charting the Course: Reimagining Open Science for Future Generations," our programme promises to unveil exciting possibilities and explore how we can collaboratively shape the future of Open Science for generations to come. We've curated an engaging agenda that includes 40 posters, 24 lightning talks, 13 demos, 11 workshops, 2 panel discussions, and 2 keynote speeches, all revolving around this year's central theme. 

We invite you to explore our carefully crafted program and save yourself a spot for our flagship event.  

We look forward to welcoming you in Madrid to discuss all things Open Science!
