Responsible AI in Research
Aimee van Wynsberghe

Aimee works to uncover the ethical risks associated with emerging robotics and AI. Aimee’s current research, funded by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, brings attention to the sustainability of AI by studying the hidden environmental costs of developing and using AI.
She is speaking as a Keynote at the SURF Research Day to give her vision on responsible AI in the future of research.

Towards sustainable national Full Open Access publishing agreements
Arjan Schalken, Oncko Heldring

UKB and SURF have been unburdening researchers and supporting them to publish in Open Access via Transformative agreements since 2015, and we are now aiming to broaden the scope to also native Open Access publishers, in order to facilitate barrier-free OA publishing with a wider range of publishers.

Challenges of maintaining a community research software package
Erik van Sebille, Niket Agrawal, Rens van de Schoot, Carlos Murilo Romero Rocha

Often a researcher or research group produce a software package that is also useful for their larger community. Others will start using it and contributing to it and it can eventually become an open source sofware package owned and maintained by the community. This transformation is not, however, trivial. How does it happen? When is the software a community package? What are the steps? What are the pitfalls and lessons learned?

EDITH, the virtual human twin. How to build bridges and work together on high computational demands?
Liesbet Geris

Liesbet Geris is the current executive director of the Virtual Physiological Human Institute and in that capacity she advocates the use of in silico modeling in healthcare through liaising with the clinical community, the European Commission and Parliament, regulatory agencies (EMA, FDA) and various other stakeholders.

At the SURF Research Day she will start with a short introduction into the European EDITH project, the Virtual Human Twin, to set the frameworks of her talk. How did she got involved in the EDITH project and what is her vision/goal on the project.

In her Keynote she will share her knowledge and experience in building ecosystem. Her talk will provide valuable insights to researchers, policy advisors, IT staff, and research support staff and enlighten them about their roles.
