In 2020 there will again be numerous events in the context of open science and related subjects. We have selected a small number of interesting events. A wide variety of more conferences, workshops, barcamps and other events is listed in our events calendar at ZBW MediaTalk.
Open Science Days 2020
02.03. – 03.03., Berlin (Germany)
“When looking at the different areas of Open Science in the past years, we were often confronted with the question on where and how the growing significance of Open Science does affect reality of a daily research routine within the various disciplines. Or: how it should be affected? This is the key question we would like to shed light on during the conference. A number of challenges for academic everyday life are reflected by the principles of Good Scientific Practice. Major changes within the complex system of research routine and publication workflows are caused not least by elements of Open Science turning into reality. This applies in particular to the fields of Open Access, Open Research Data and Open Research Software, which have been at the center of attention for quite some time now.”
Open Science Conference
11.03. – 12.03., Berlin (Germany)
“The conference addresses topics around Open Science such as: Innovations to support open science practices and their application and acceptance in scientific communities, Scientific benefit of open science practices and their impact in society, Open science education and science communication to the broad public.”
