Dear subscribers to the Open Science Discussion List,

(Apologies if you have already received this message.)

Via this way we would like to invite you to listen to the first episode<https://openscience-utrecht.com/oscu-podcast/> of the podcast series Road to Open Science, which has been released this week. The podcast series follows the path to open science through the perspective of researchers. It covers various aspects, from practicalities to policies and philosophies and aims to answer the questions what is open science and what can it do for research?

For many within the academic community the subject of open science is still unknown territory or a very unclear subject. Those who have already gained more knowledge on the topic, have very varying views when it comes to definitions and practices. Through interviews with researchers from different disciplines who share their experiences, the podcasts provide a structured source of information and hope to clear the way for more relevant and deeper discussions.

In the first episode Sascha Friesike, assistant professor at the VU in Digital Innovation and associated researcher at the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society in Berlin, explains why a lot of people still hesitate to embrace open science.
Second guest on the episode is Frank Miedema, professor of Immunology, dean and vice chairman of the board at the University Medical Center in Utrecht. He reacts on the issues that are raised in the first part of the episode and sees an important role for the management of universities and big funders to change the incentives and reward system.

Various inspiring activities will also be featured to give a broad idea of what sort of things are happening concerning open science. Listeners are invited to discuss the topics raised in the podcast via the website of the Open Science Community Utrecht<https://openscience-utrecht.com/oscu-podcast/>, where the episodes can be found. They can also directly engage with the producers via Twitter<https://twitter.com/R2OSpodcast>.
