From: HQ-OPENSCIENCESubject: [NASA Transform to Open Science-Announcements] Invitation to White House Listening Sessions with Early Career ResearchersDate: May 22, 2023 at 5:02:52 PM EDTTo: "firstname.lastname@example.org"The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) is hosting a series of virtual listening sessions focused on open science. These sessions aim to gather valuable input and perspectives from a diverse range of individuals involved in training and capacity building, including undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, librarians, educators, and administrators.The listening sessions are hosted as part of a Year of Open Science, announced by the White House in January 2023 and will provide an opportunity for participants to share their views and insights on various topics related to open science. Each session will focus on a specific theme and will include opportunities for comment from individuals who are passionate about advancing open science and lowering barriers to entry for researchers across all backgrounds.To speak during the session, please indicate your intent on the registration form. To ensure diverse viewpoints, each speaker will be given up to two minutes per comment. If time permits, participants may deliver multiple comments.For more details and to register, visit here or see below. The sessions are open to the public, please share this invitation with others who might be interested.The listening sessions are as follows:
