#Papers2Pluto

With the NASA New Horizons spacecraft on its final approach to its primary target - the icy dwarf planet Pluto - now is the perfect time to reflect on some of the knowledge we've already gained from the mission, and to anticipate the new discoveries that are waiting to be made!

We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to a series of short talks inspired by the mission. These talks will cover a number of topics including:

NASA's and New Horizon's impact within the world of research

How the Mendeley product suite aim to make life easier for researchers

The importance of open science and the impact it has on major scientific achievements

How a culture of 'hacking' can help to foster innovation and creativity

The benefits of making data available for public usage and its societal impact

A hack demo, created at DC's first-ever Science Hack Day, called PoliConnect 

Mendeley loves science! We help researchers to manage their reference materials, to collaborate with their colleagues and to discover new research. We’re excited about the possibilities that our work can help to unlock and we want to talk to other people who are excited about the same things.
