First German Open Science Festival in Hannover on 30 and 31 August 2022

Register now! A festival with a colourful mix of different formats around Open Science – Meet, Share, Inspire, Care!

Open Science lives from the implementation of science practices based on transparency, reproducibility, reusability and open communication. And it is exactly these aspects that will be the main focus of the first German Open Science Festival in Hannover on 30 and 31 August 2022. Together, Leibniz Universität Hannover (LUH) and TIB – Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology are organising the festival with various formats.

Open Science in the current science system: Keynote, panel discussions and an Open Science marketplace

Keynote speaker will be Prof. Sarah de Rijke from the Centre for Science & Technology Studies (CWTS) at Leiden University. She has published widely on quality control mechanisms and knowledge production and is an author on UNESCO’s current recommendations on Open Science.

Prof. Sarah de Rijke will also participate in the panel discussion “Open Science – just science done right”, where she will talk with Prof. Frank Miedema von der Universität Utrecht and Prof. Dr. Stefanie Büchner (Tenure Track Professor at LUH and member of the Junge Akademie) as well as Dr. Rainer Lange from the German Council of Science and Humanities about how scientific integrity can be promoted through Open Science practices and how credit systems in science are at conflict with the implementation of Open Science practices. In another panel discussion international experts will discuss the extent to which data streams in science – and thus also in open science – are commercialised. Panelists are Prof. Sarah Lamdan (CUNY School of Law, New York) and Prof. Arianna Becerril-García (Chair of Ameli, Open Knowledge for Latin America and the Global South (AmeliCA), founder of Redalyc.org, and Professor at the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico). Felix Reda (Gesellschaft für Freiheitsrechte e. V.) is invited. Both panel discussions are in English and will be recorded.

A marketplace will provide information on which initiatives and services already exist at Leibniz Universität and TIB and how you can set up a network yourself.

Participate in the hands-on workshops

Hands-on! – Open Science thrives on the implementation of open practices. In various workshops, interested parties can get to know open science methods and tools and network with each other.

The main focus of the hands-on workshops:

  • Modern science communication (Dr. André Lampe, science communicator)
  • Open Science in Energy Research (Ludwig Hülk, Reiner Lemoine Institute)
  • Data Carpentry (Katrin Leinweber, GitLab – The Carpentries, und LInna Lu, TIB)
  • Open Research Knowledge Graph (Dr. Oliver Karras and Dr. Anna-Lena Lorenz, both TIB)
  • Wiki-edit-athon on “Women in Science”
  • Open Access Escape Room (Yvana Glasenapp, LUH)
  • Reproducibility Hackathon (Anja Eggert and Frank Krüger, Open Reproducible Data Science and Statistic)
  • Transparency and openness in peer review: Toward a new publication and evaluation culture (Ludo Waltman, Centre for Science & Technology Studies (CWTS) at Leiden University)
  • Using Wikipedia for science communication (Paul Börsting and Maximilian Heimstädt (Weizenbaum Institute / Berlin University of the Arts)

LUH and TIB got the idea for their own Open Science Festival from the Dutch Open Science Festival 2021. Thank you for this inspiration!
