The Open Science Barcamp was hosted by the ‘Communities in New Media’ (GeNeMe) conference organised by the TU Dresden Media Centre on the 7th of October. The move to online only for the barcamp managed to keep the ‘in-the-moment’ spontaneity that makes a barcamp special – showing off group ingenuity and creating a welcoming environment attracting participants from around the world. The format also worked in terms of turning questions and abstract notions into concrete steps that participants could take away.
GenR met up via an online video with Matthew Hodgson CEO and CTO of Element and Matrix protocol co-founder to talk about how researchers can harness ‘Data Sovereignty’ using real-time communications. Element has found a formula for scaling open-source infrastructure – bringing secure decentralised communications and collaboration to education and the public sector across Europe.

As part of the GenR theme ‘Innovating Open Science Systems for COVID-19’ we will look at how Open Science can improve ‘collaboration and communication’ in R&D communities working on Contact Tracing for C-19. GenR will carry out a mapping of applicable Open Science systems in consultation with the public health community.
Open Science research practices need reinforcing and their value for science and society communicating to the wider public.
Join presenters from a number of open-source and open science projects for a 60 minutes online presentation. The session is fast paced and an essential place to go for cutting edge developments in Open Science infrastructures.
If Corona-Warn-App (CWA) is successful in its Open Science approach it will be a game changer for the responsible use of machine learning in the public realm but also to enable more and better data gathering and applications.
From the Open Publishing Fest 2020 a panel was convened by Bianca Kramer, Jeroen Bosman, Jeroen Sondervan (Utrecht University Library) to address guidelines being put in place to govern open infrastructures. The hour long discussion shows that there is a lot more work that needs to be done to facilitate Open Science and create an […]
The questions GenR wants to ask in the context of COVID-19 are what challenges are driving innovation in the Open Science community involved in delivering and developing technical systems
The 9th of April Jon Tennant passed away. He was tragically killed in a motorbike accident in Indonesia while on a research residency at the IGDORE campus. Jon had been a tireless advocate of Open Science and friend to all in the Open Science community. At Generation Research we were honored to have him as a founding member of our advisory board.
