Workshop „Focus on Open Science: Citizen Science, Research Data, Access to Knowledge, and Beyond“ (Vienna, November 20th 2017)

WHEN: November 20th, 2017

WHERE: at Austrian Agency for International Cooperation in Education and Research (Ebendorferstraße 7, 1010 Vienna)

The event is organised by Scientific Knowledge Services in cooperation with e-Infrastructures Austria Plus and LIBER (Association of European Research Libraries).

Scientific Knowledge Services and its partners are introducing an exciting series of Workshops in Central Europe on the theme of Open Science. The purpose of the Workshops is to introduce the concept and values of the Open Science agenda to new communities.

The Workshop is seen as an introduction to the ‚disruptive change‘ which Open Science brings. The presenters will offer a complete overview of Open Science’s core elements, from the perspective of libraries. It will clearly show how Open Access, Research Data Management, E-Infrastructures and Citizen Science are connected and form a building block that represents a future role for libraries.
