What to expect?

ONLINE Escape Room is a game where you need to solve several puzzles in order to "get out of the room"! We've built this escape room with open science as a theme, however, all you need to solve the puzzles will be made available to you - you don't need to be an expert to finish the game.

At the beginning, we will create teams of three participants. You can come with your own team or get team members assigned to you. Otherwise we will put you in the team randomly.

Who should attend?

The Escape Room is intended for everyone at the VU: students, researchers, research support staff. It is meant as a fun event where you get some insights about Open Science practice. Everyone is welcome to attend.

About the escape room 

The escape room is a team effort; it was built by RDM Support at the VU Library, TU Delft and Erasmus University Rotterdam, with financial help of Research Data Support programme
