We have the pleasure to present to you another Community Edition of Open Science Radio, this time kindly provided by Claudia Göbel.
So this episode brings together three experiences of doing research in cooperation between people from inside and outside academic institutions in different settings in the global South:
– How can Citizen Science build on traditions of participatory research in Latin America? Soledad Luna has pushed Citizen Science activities for research and conservation in Ecuador.
– What is Africa OSH and how is it related to Europe? Thomas Mboa works on open and participatory research, DIY biology and cognitive justice with the Association for the Promotion of Open Science in Haiti and Africa (APSOHA) and MboaLab.
– What challenges are involved in getting rare data for monitoring climate change? Khalissa Ikhlef looks after the Sandwatch project for beach monitoring in Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and coastal countries at UNESCO.
This podcast is the edited recording of the “Story Café” workshop that was held as preconference event to the international conference on Citizen Science in June 2018 in Geneva. The workshop was realized by Claudia Göbel as part of her work for the European Citizen Science Association, which organized the conference, in the context of the EU-funded project “Doing-it-Together science” (2016-2019). We hope these stories can be more than just tokens in a structurally unequal conversation and inspire others to share their experiences, listen closer and critically interrogate the global nature of knowledge production, research policy as well as our very personal role within them.
If you’ve been listening to us for a while you have probably already heard about Felix Schönbrodt, as we have mentioned him in a number of episodes talking about projects he was involved in and a number of talks, e.g. his lighting talk at the 2016 Barcamp Science 2.0 or his recent talk at the Open Science Conference 2018. Felix is a principal investigator for Psychological Methods and Assessment at the Department of Psychology, and moreover, he is an absolute Open Science enthusiast.
As we mentioned in our wrap-up episode for this year’s Barcamp Open Science and Open Science Conference, we found Felix’s conference talk really insightful, so it is our pleasure to provide it to you with kind permission from Felix and hope that you find it equally enlightening and motivating.
If you wanna closely follow his presentation including his slides, please use the video embedded into the blogpost for this episode or his slides linked in they the Open Science Conference programme.
As you have recognized, Open Science Radio was again attending the Barcamp Open Science as well as the Open Science Conference. This episode is a wrap-up of the 2018 run of those two (related) events, again together with Guido Scherp, one of the organizers (you’ll know him by now). Guido is providing his impressions from the two events, we share ours and discuss a few things in general, as well as a few of the talks in more detail.
And now, have fun!
OpenAIRE supports the European Commission’s Open Data Pilot. At the Open Science Conference poster session, Ellen Leenarts from OpenAIRE-Advance gave us a bit more insight in their survey about how the data management plan requirements in H2020 (PDF) are perceived by researchers and research supporters.
