The 9th of April Jon Tennant passed away. He was tragically killed in a motorbike accident in Indonesia while on a research residency at the IGDORE campus. Jon had been a tireless advocate of Open Science and friend to all in the Open Science community. At Generation Research we were honored to have him as a founding member of our advisory board.

It’s no longer the case in Open Science that you are alone and having to work out questions for the first time. What the two events showed is that there are open models being put in place that others can adopt, such as developing OER and MOOC content in a research field, or embedding social consideration in research with the RRI framework from the FIT4RRI project. Having full open research life-cycles is still to be achieved, but we are no longer working in the dark. A report from the two events which took place in March in Berlin on the last days before lockdown.
