Open Box Science
Making Science Open for the World
Open Box Science (OBS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit platform dedicated to open science and democratized scientific training. OBS is a grassroots community that organizes free talks BY early-career scientists and OPEN to all around the world.
OBS was born during the 2020 COVID-19 lock-down, when scientists could no longer exchange ideas through traditional meetings. A few scientists gathered to share their recent findings through virtual seminars; but instead of restricting attendance, they opened the seminars to audiences worldwide. In the process, they broke institutional and geographical boundaries that hindered open science. They also formed cross-disciplinary connections and broadened their career perspectives. The OBS community is growing each day to include scientists from ever-expanding diverse backgrounds. Within one year, 100+ scientific talks and career panels have been hosted by the OBS community.
Scientists love to share ideas. To empower their efforts, OBS provides a platform to supercharge science communication in an OPEN, RAPID, and INTERACTIVE manner.
