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 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.

An Open Energy System Modeling Community

The Open Energy Modelling Initiative (shortened to openmod) is an online and offline umbrella community devoted to promoting open energy system modeling and analysis. While there are no restrictions on application area, the bulk of funded research is directed toward questions involving public policy. As of late‑2019, the openmod has about 600 participants on its mailing list, with most of them being full‑time researchers or analysts.
