Moving the Open Science Barcamp Online!

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.



Joining the Dots: Berlin Open Science Barcamp & Conference

It’s no longer the case in Open Science that you are alone and having to work out questions for the first time. What the two events showed is that there are open models being put in place that others can adopt, such as developing OER and MOOC content in a research field, or embedding social consideration in research with the RRI framework from the FIT4RRI project. Having full open research life-cycles is still to be achieved, but we are no longer working in the dark. A report from the two events which took place in March in Berlin on the last days before lockdown.

Enormous need for exchange This event format was offered for the fifth time on the eve of […]


Barcamp Open Science: We need to talk!

Given that open science is a hot topic of conversation, is it also being put into practice? Open science has unfortunately not yet completely caught on, and the oft discussed cultural change is taking time. Often there is a lack of knowledge and orientation in the complex world of open science. That is why it is important to approach researchers, facilitate an exchange about practices and answer their questions. This was the focus of the fourth Barcamp Open Science, organised by the Leibniz Research Alliance Science 2.0 and held at Wikimedia as it was last year. Launched as a pre-event […]
