Over the last couple of years, a number of people at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich have relentlessly (in a good way) been pushing open science efforts. Be it in the form of incorporating open science badges, signing open initiatives, or the foundation of an Open Science Committee at LMU, there has been a lot of activity in a very desireable direction.
These activities have finally led to an even more manifest joint effort, the foundation of the Open Science Center at LMU. We had the great pleasure to talk to Anne-Laure Boulesteix and Felix Schönbrodt about how the foundation came about, its self-conception, its mission and the services it can offer to researchers at the LMU and maybe even beyond.
