Open Science Meetings

GLP aims to organize Open Science Meetings for the entire GLP community every 2 to 4 years. Among the goals of Open Science Meetings are to be a place where the GLP community can exchange progress on science, to be inspired by debates on advances and the links between science, policy and practice, and to forge contacts with other GLP community members.
