Podcast/Talkshow meeting 1 (in Dutch): Why do we need open access and how do we make it a reality?
In this first session, we sat down with four guests to discuss why it is crucial’ that research results are made freely available to everyone; not only to science, but also to teachers and pupils, to GPs and patients. What is needed for researchers actually to start publishing open access? What are the remaining hurdles and how do we remove them? How does open access actually benefit science and society?
Guests: Dr. Eelco Ruijter, VU Amsterdam, Faculty of Science, Organic Chemistry, Eppo Groenewold, former deputy headmaster and adviser at Revius Lyceum in Doorn, Wies van Roosmalen, product owner Programme Research and Implementation manager at the Dutch Cancer Society, Dr. Sander Begeer, VU Amsterdam, Faculty of Behavioural and Movement Sciences, Clinical Developmental Psychology, specialised in autism
