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.


Civil Society Engagement Seeks Open Science for Rapid Decarbonization!

Opensay, a new open research community, recently launched to bring together civil society organisations and modelling researchers and apply Open Science practices to further 100% decarbonization planning and policy. ‘Opensay: open (energy) system analysis community’ has come out of the predominantly European ‘openmod’ open energy modelling community to partner with civil society organizations and bring open analytics practices to a wider audience.

Open Science, Collaboration and Participation in Energy System Research

Open Energy Modelling has been built up as a research community over the last ten years aiming to bring transparency to the field using an array of Open Science methods for the planning of energy systems. The role of collaboration in the research cycle used by scientists in this engineering community is now an established Open Science practice. Similar practices of collaboration and participation outside of academia involving the public are still in their infancy. Harnessing public participation in energy planning and policy development is likely change as the energy sector is undergoing rapid changes due to its large contribution to greenhouse gases and the consequent demands for transparency and innovation to tackle climate change.
