OpenCon community calls give a chance for you to learn what's happening in open research and education around the world, share what you're doing and find collaborators and opportunities.
To kick off the launch of OpenCon Collaborate, this month’s call will be focused around collaboration and supporting Open projects. We’ll hear about some exciting projects happening in the OpenCon community that are looking for help & support. We’ll then have some time for Q&A, and open time for anyone who wants to share any Open projects that they’ve been working on!
Confirmed speakers and their projects will be made available on our agenda, which you can access here: http://bit.ly/OpenConCommunityCalls

What to expect
Community calls are always friendly, and we love new faces. The more you participate, the more you'll get out of it! No doubt there will be a lot of this too.WHENApril 26, 2017 at 12pm
