Open Box Science
Making Science Open for the World
Open Box Science (OBS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that empowers scientists by providing open science talks, facilitating diverse career development, and enhancing science communication.
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 the 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 that broadened their perspectives on meaningful scientific careers. The OBS community grew each day; scientists from all backgrounds joined the movement to communicate their science. In just one year, over 100 scientific talks and career panels have been hosted by the OBS community.
Scientists love to share ideas and see how their research can benefit society. To empower their efforts, OBS provides a platform to supercharge science communication in an OPEN, RAPID, and INTERACTIVE manner.
