Welcome to the 3rd cohort of Open Life Science program!

Niklas Morberg (CC BY-NC 2.0)

The OLS-3 program

Purpose: Training for early stage researchers and young leaders interested in furthering their Open Science skills

Outcome: Ambassadors for Open Science practice, training and education across multiple European and international bioinformatics communities.

Process: A 16-week mentoring & training program, based on the Mozilla Open Leader program, helping participants in becoming Open Science ambassadors by using three principles:

  1. Sharing essential knowledge required to create, lead, and sustain an Open Science project.
  2. Connecting members across different communities, backgrounds, and identities by creating space in this program for them to share their experiences and expertise.
  3. Empowering them to become effective Open Science ambassadors in their communities.

Goals and Learning Objectives

The vision of Open Life Science program is to strengthen Open Science skills for early stage researchers and young leaders in life science.

At the end of the program, our participants will be able to:

  • Describe and define the terms openness, open science, open leadership, community interactions, value exchanges, inclusivity, accessibility, open Science practices in developing resources and training
  • Learn how to apply those principles to open leadership and working open in their projects and communities . Learn how to collect, invite, and tell stories that demonstrate how and why openness benefits the communities they serve
  • Give original examples for the types of openness in science
  • Design
    • Illustrate the need for a project, its vision, and its goals
    • Embrace and communicate the benefits of Open Science and how to strategically apply different open practices to their work
    • Identify the public resources to share their data
    • Identify the different type of Open Access and associated journals
  • Build
    • Start any project with openness in mind from day one
    • Setup a project repository on GitHub using best practices for enabling collaboration
    • Choose and apply open licenses appropriately
  • Empower
    • Create and enforce a safe working environment
    • Promote the values of Open Science to empower others to lead and collaborate
    • Include a broad range of contributors in their work
    • Communicate their work and vision in a 2min demo of elevator pitch
  • Lead an open project in science

Role Descriptions

Project leads (aka Mentees)

Participants join this program with a project that they either are already working on or want to develop during this program. More details about the role of a project lead (mentee) can be found here.

For the third round of the Open Life Science program, we welcome 65 participants with 37 projects.

Mentors

Our project leads are supported in this program by our mentor-community who are paired based on the compatibility of expertise, interests and requirements of their projects. Our mentors are Open Science practitioners and champions with previous experiences in training and mentoring. They are currently working in different professions in data science, publishing, community building, software development, clinical studies, industries, scientific training and IT services.

Mentors advise and inspire

  • Connect: to people, programs, companies
  • Recommend: resources, readings, classes, experiences
  • Feedback: for the project leads to consider

Pool of mentors

We thank the 34 mentors this round.

Mentoring training

Mentorship roles can sound like a big personal responsibility and can be overwhelming for new mentors. To support our mentors in this program, we will offer training, topic-based guided discussions and opportunity for social interaction over 4 calls during the mentorship round:

  • 2 training calls in the beginning of the cohort to get participants trained and prepared for their role as mentors
  • 1 catch-up call in the middle of the cohort to discuss new topics and challenges that might have occurred and address them
  • 1 call at the end to capture experiences of mentors and assess their interest in future cohorts
  • Social and co-working calls schedule will be agreed among the mentors as per their needs and interests

In the mentor training, our mentors will then gain mentoring skills (active listening, effective questioning, giving feedback), learn to celebrate successes and gain confidence on navigating challenges in mentoring.

A dedicated slack channel will facilitate open discussions among mentors to help them discuss their experiences, challenges and tips and tricks (contact the team if you are not yet on this channel).

Experts

Experts are invited to join cohort calls or individual mentorship calls to share their experience and expertise during the program.

We thank the 63 persons who registered to be experts in this round.
