As you certainly have recognized, we have published a couple of short episodes from the Barcamp Science 2.0, the event organized by the Leibniz Research Alliance Science 2.0 in connection to their annual Science 2.0 conference. This episode is a short wrap-up together with Guido Scherp, one of the organizers of the Barcamp (you know him from episode 40 already). Guido is providing his impressions from the two events, we share ours and discuss a few things.
The Open Science Radio will attend this year’s Barcamp Science 2.0 and the Science 2.0 Conference (at least day 1 of 2) in Cologne. We will use this great opportunity to record and publish a few special episodes dedicated to these events and the related topics.
This year’s edition of the barcamp (#s20bar), taking place on the 2nd of May, will focus on the topic “Putting Science 2.0 and Open Science into practice!” and addresses all people interested in open science – junior scientists, senior researchers, practicioners and also interested non-professionals. The interactive barcamp format will be a good opportunity to meet members of the community and take active participation in the fruitful discussions.
The conference (#s20conf), taking place on the 3rd and 4th of May, will mainly focus on the European Open Science Cloud and the many (open) questions around it. This classical academic conference format will give researchers, policy makers and publishers a good opportunity to get interesting insights on the European level of open science. Furthermore, it is the final conference of the EEXCESS project and participants will be shown concrete scenarios and applications developed by this EU project.
In order to get a good introduction to both events and topics, we’ve invited one of the organizers, Guido Scherp, to join us in this episode and provide us with a brief overview what participants can expect from the 2 events. Since registrations are still open, Guido warmly invites all interested people to join either (or both) of the events.
