An interview with Joachim Allgaier on his recently published study on how social media platforms such as YouTube have become hostile to climate science. When you search around climate change on YouTube the results are 50/50 climate science versus anti-science Chemtrails conspiracy theories.

15 years ago, people thought that the future of libraries was rather grim. Now they are more popular than ever – and particularly as learning environments. What tasks will libraries be facing in the year 2050? And what meaning do they have for their target groups?
by Nicole Clasen, Birgit Fingerle and Dr. Doreen Siegfried A podium discussion (link in German language) on the topic of “Libraries 2050” was held on 21 October 2019 in the ZBW Hamburg as part of the ZBW anniversary year. The panel consisted of Barbara Lison, director of Bremen Public Library and designated president of IFLA; Dr Ute Krauß-Leichert, Hamburg University of Applied Sciences; Volker Heller, chairman and management director of the ZLB (Berlin Central & Regional Library) Foundation; and Thorsten Meyer, chief librarian of the ZBW. The podium discussion was moderated by Nicole Clasen from ZBW. We have summarised some […]
Around the research alliance and it’s partners Digital Salon at TIB At the TIB – Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology, the Digital Salon (Link in German) is entering its second round. In lectures and discussions, the question will be examined of how scientific work can be successful and more effective in an increasingly […]
Established indicators for research and innovation processes do not sufficiently capture the nuances of open science and open innovation. As a result, their opportunities and risks often remain obscure. A new discussion paper therefore makes proposals for the expansion of existing indicators and the development of new ones. We looked at possible innovations in the field of open science.
by Birgit Fingerle In order to better identify the opportunities and risks of open science and open innovation, including those that relate to research and technology policy, a fundamental reconsidering of the recording, analysis and evaluation of the practices and structures of open science and open innovation should take place. The discussion paper “Open Science and Open Innovation – New Indicators for the Analysis of the Science and Innovation System in the Digital Age” (“Open Science und Open Innovation – Neue Indikatoren für die Analyse des Wissenschafts- und Innovationssystems im digitalen Zeitalter”, link in German language) by Clemens Blümel, published […]

The newly launched AtMoDat project is carrying out research to enable data used in Atmospheric Models for Climate Research to be open and usable by the wide array of smaller modeling project and urban climate model research. The research will make use of DataCite DOIs and metadata schema, acting as extension to the schema while being supported by AtMoDat partner data infrastructure service providers

by Birgit Fingerle The study “Blockchain in Higher Education – Fundamentals – Potentials – Boundaries” (Study in German language „Blockchain in der Hochschulbildung – Grundlagen – Potenziale – Grenzen“) of the Stifterverband was compiled on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Education and Research, and published in July 2019. It continues the EU study published at the end of 2017 “Blockchain in Education” focussing on the German higher education system. The individual chapters explore the technological and design fundamentals of blockchain technology and the technical, economic and societal added values of its use, such as its potential contribution to lowering […]
Blockchains are credited with bringing great benefits for economics and society. This also applies to the higher education sector. A recently published study explores blockchain in higher education. We took a closer look at which application scenarios seem to be particularly interesting in relation to promoting open science.
