Early-career researchers (ECRs) are in a position to be game changers in academia, ushering in a new era of open access, open data, and open science. But many have concerns about how to share their work and still advance their careers. Join our keynote speaker and early-career researcher, Erin McKiernan, as she tackles these concerns and discusses several ways in which ECRs can make their work open and achieve success. Pizza and drinks provided while they last.
