Julien Colomb
Switzerland
After 12 years spent on fundamental research (neuro-genetics) in which I gathered skills in experimental design, team leading and student teaching, I got most interested in open science and research reproducibility as well as the digital tools helping scientists to achieve it. I would like to apply these novel knowledge while doing research and mentoring students.

Chris Hartgerink
The Netherlands
I'm a PhD-candidate at Tilburg University, part of a meta-research group. The closedness of academia drives me mad, and these kinds of projects energize me, keeping me sane and stable.

Bianca Kramer
The Netherlands
I work at Utrecht University Library and on the project 101 Innovations in Scholarly Communication, charting open science principles, practices and platforms. I also do lots of workshops and training. I like talking with researchers, publishers, funders, anyone about motivations and barriers to open science, and how to make that happen - the sooner the better, the more the better.
