OpenCon strives to bring together effective, involved students and early career academic professionals from across the Globe to develop Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data—irrespective of their capability to pay for travel costs. In OpenCon’s first four years, main invited attendees who required financial support to attend have received scholarships. For this reason, attendance at OpenCon is by application only. The application process is significant to allocating the limited spaces for attendees and scholarship funding fairly. Applications are appraised by ex-attendees from previous years, and the international organising committee makes final decisions on acceptances and scholarships.

Value of opportunity

Discover new collaborators, get connected with scholarships to attend related conferences, and actively participate in a larger community of Open advocates year-round. Students and early career academic professionals of all experience levels are encouraged to apply.

  • Students and early career academic professionals of all experience levels are encouraged to apply.
