OSC2020 Awards

The OSC awards are classified into two main groups:

Open Science Xove Awards according to categories:

At Open Science Cambre we believe that the best way to learn science is to do science and the best way to understand science is to explain science. That is why we have created Open Science Xove #OSXove, young researchers not only doing science, but also popularising science, showing all kinds of audiences, young and old, the most interesting aspects of their projects. We have created a scientific competition in which 70 projects of young people between 6 and 18 years old from all over Spain and different countries are participating. The competition will reward the winners with the attendance to other international science fairs that take place in Spain. The Open Science Xove competition, being included in an Open Science fair, contains scientific projects that can be used as free educational resources #OER. An ideal place to get inspired, ask questions, learn and why not copy. Remember, in our fair it is "No touching" and "No copying".
