Agile Working: Promoting Innovation and Open Science with Scrum

Projects that are completed too late, where costs get out of hand or which have been allowed to spiral beyond the users’ control: these are just a few examples of nightmare scenarios in project management. Digitalisation, changing values and a dynamic environment render it both possible and necessary to deal with new, agile forms of work. How about using agility in projects to push the implementation of innovation and Open Science? One way to do this is to apply the Scrum project management approach, an overview of which we provide here.

Tips and best practices: How libraries digitise their learning opportunities

Even if libraries are gradually reopening, it is still worthwhile to accelerate the further digitisation of their services. More digital services will enable libraries to promote openness more convincingly and to prepare for possible new closures of their local services. But how can training and other library services be offered online in a meaningful manner? We have put together some tips.





Interview: How Open Science is changing the Landscape of Academic Libraries

In his master thesis Dr Thomas Gerdes dealt with the topic “The Open Science Movement and its significance for the academic libraries – An Analysis of Position Papers and Development Perspectives” (link in German). The focus was on a target-actual comparison and the development perspectives for open science in academic libraries. We asked him about it. How did you proceed in your master thesis? The term “open science” sums up heterogeneous aspirations for a more open science. What open science means for academic libraries is discussed in a variety of position papers and other publications. My work compares the target […]


Opening up science: How the library will become a hub for open innovation and science

Openness in science and innovation can be looked at in two dimensions: On the one hand, the integration of a wide range of knowledge providers into the different phases of the science/implementation process. On the other, the creation of transparency and free access to the results of scientific study. A new initiative from the Stifterverband (Donors Association for Open Science and Innovation) has set itself the goal of no longer seeing open innovation and open science as separated according to economics and science. Instead, it is hoped that the joint debate and the creation of interfaces will make it easier […]
