Open Research Data

Digital research data play a key role in science. These data are of tremendous economic value, and have a general impact on society. Open Science aims at a paradigm shift, which makes digital research data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR) for a global user community.

In view of the current efforts to develop concepts and environments for providing open research data, there is a strong need for an international consensus about science-adequate and efficient implementations. This requires a broad transdisciplinary discussion of the roles of individual scientists, research organizations, funding bodies and the public in the process.   

This workshop, an event of the Berlin Science Week , assembles leading researchers from science and humanities and experts for the conceptual and legal framework of open science in an international context. In a series of talks, basic concepts, technical aspects, and prototypical solutions in humanities, economics, and natural sciences will be presented, including an online demonstration of exemplary material from the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy. A panel of experts will discuss future opportunities and challenges that arise in light of the multifaceted scientific, legal, and financial boundary conditions. Discussion of the audience with speakers and panelists will be part of the program.

Generous financial support of the workshop by the Wilhelm und Else Heraeus-Stiftung  is gratefully acknowledged.
