International FAIR Convergence Symposium 2020
“This event will provide a unique forum for advancing international and cross-domain convergence around FAIR. The two internationally recognized organisations will convene a global community with an interest in combining data across domains for a host of research issues – including major global challenges, such as those relating to the SDGs or the COVID-19 pandemic. Outcomes will directly inform the CODATA Decadal Programme ‘Making data work for cross-domain grand challenges’ and the GO FAIR community’s convergence towards bottom-up development of the Internet of FAIR data and services globally.”

7. German U15 Dialog zur Zukunft der universitären Lehre
“Universitäre Lehre durchläuft gerade eine echte Sprunginnovation. Die Hochschulen sind mitten im zweiten Semester Corona-Lehre. Was zuvor nur ein Nischenphänomen war, ist heute neue Normalität: Vorlesungen und Seminare finden digital statt, der Begegnungsraum Universität ist nahezu vollständig ins Virtuelle verlagert. Die Erfahrung universitärer Lehre ist aktuell fundamental anders als in den Semestern vor der Pandemie. Und während wir uns an Zoom und Big Blue Button gewöhnen, ahnen wir: Lehre wird auch nach der Pandemie mittel- und langfristig anders aussehen. Sie wird sich verändern, nur: In welche Richtung? Wird es künftig noch große Vorlesungen geben? Wird tatsächlich alles digitaler und hybrider – oder wird umgekehrt gerade Präsenz noch wichtiger als sie es vorher war? Und wie fördert man gezielt Innovationen in der Lehre, wie es sich eine neue Stiftung, getragen von Bund und Ländern, zur Aufgabe gesetzt hat?”

Ökonomie wissenschaftlichen Publizierens: Wer bezahlt die Rechnung der Open-Access- Transformation? (Reihe: Offenheit in der Wissenschaft: Wissenschaft und digitale Kultur – Open Science in der Praxis)
“Vom freien Zugang zu wissenschaftlichen Forschungsergebnissen profitieren nicht nur die Öffentlichkeit, sondern auch die großen Wissenschaftsverlage. Open Access ist über Publikationsgebühren inzwischen fest in ihre Geschäftsmodelle integriert. Wer kann es sich leisten Open Access zu publizieren und wer nicht? Sind Publikationsfonds oder die DEAL-Verträge die Lösung? Oder werden die Probleme der Zeitschriftenkrise damit nur verschoben?”

Die Corona-Warn-App wurde quelloffen entwickelt. Wie lassen sich die Ansprüche auf eine schnelle Veröffentlichung mit Qualitätsansprüchen vereinbaren? Und welche Voraussetzungen sollten Politik und Hochschulen dafür schaffen, dass Wissen und Forschung (auch) in Zukunft geöffnet und geteilt werden können?”

APE 2021: The New Face of Trust
“Was that the real beginning of the new 21st Century? Global challenges changing lives on a scale never seen before – a global pandemic, ferocious evidence of climate change and biodiversity loss, and cyber warfare influencing global leadership against a backdrop where evidence and experts are increasingly discounted in place of tribes with their own truths. Research is increasingly having to step up to meet global challenges and we need robust responses to reclaim trust in both scholarly publishing and the expertise of researchers as we map the path to the future. Covid-19 stress-tested scholarly communication and there’s room for improvement but also inspiration for change. A changing world has led to new solutions and new players – but are they robust and tested for long-term trust? Pre-prints proved a rapid way to communicate potentially crucial findings in a crisis but is the world ready to understand the implications of reading un-tested research? Peer review, the bastion of trusted science, is under scrutiny from those within and outside research and with calls for transparency and openness in science, where next for dissemination of research findings? 2021 is the start of a very new and very different period in history and we come together with purpose and a collaborative spirit.”

Workshop | 13.01., Online

FAIR & Research Software
“How can FAIR Principles be applied to research software. Making data and digital research objects findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable is at the core of the FAIR initiative; however, can FAIR principles be applied to other data domains, such as research software? During this webinar, Dr. Lamprecht will investigate the applicability of FAIR principles to research software and what can be done to make software FAIR(er). By evaluating many of the international community initiatives that are working towards creating, developing, and standardizing FAIR principles for research software, Dr. Lamprecht hopes to foster a deeper understanding of the versatility and interdisciplinary nature of the FAIR principles. In addition, she will provide ways in which you can gain a better understanding of how and when to FAIRify research software.”

FAIR services & infrastructure: Proposing an assessment framework for FAIR-enabling data services
“To realise the full potential of a FAIR ecosystem in which research outputs can be easily shared and optimally reused, we have to look beyond the FAIRification of data and other digital objects – and also consider the infrastructure and services that act on those objects. Providers of data services need guidance and direction on how their services can be optimally ‘FAIR enabling’ and drive towards an optimal interplay between FAIR digital objects and services. In order to provide such guidance, FAIRsFAIR is developing a FAIR assessment framework for service owners: a framework that can be used to gauge where change is needed, together with actionable recommendations for incremental improvements. In this webinar we will present a first version of this assessment framework, as recently published on Zenodo.”

We would like to explore how the A&OER community cares for others by advocating for accessibility and equity of materials. With many conference themes centered around Covid-19 and its impact on students and faculty, we thought we would take this concept one step further and explore how the use of A&OER can address the issues of unequal access to educational materials on college campuses that have become so apparent during the pandemic. This theme is inspired by the importance of using Affordable and Open Educational Resources as a means to champion social equity by ensuring accessibility of materials to all students.”

Webinar Series: German-Dutch dialogue on the future of libraries: Central services for public libraries
“The national library (KB) in the Netherlands offers central digital services to public libraries and to patrons as well. How these services were initiated in the past and how the situation is currently will be presented and compared with the situation in Germany. Because of the political system and the cultural sovereignty of the federal states, the support of smaller public libraries in Germany is not centralized, but so called ‘Fachstellen’ in various federal states offer services to their libraries. This system, its tasks and services are presented – decentralised or centralised support for public libraries – what are the advantages and disadvantages? And what effects will the pandemic have to these services in the future? How will the idea of the third place be connected with the need to offer mobile services for the library users during and after corona?”
