About Open Science Conference

The Open Science Conference 2017 is the 4th international conference of the Leibniz Research Alliance Science 2.0. It is a continuation and development of the former Science 2.0 Conference. It is dedicated to the Open Science movement and provides a unique forum where researchers, librarians, practitioners, politicians, and other important stakeholders can discuss and exchange their ideas and experiences.

The thematic focus is this year on “open educational resources”. Open educational resources include course materials (print and digital), modules, streaming videos, software, and any other tools, materials, or techniques used to support open access to knowledge.

Besides presentations by international experts, the conference programme also includes a poster session for the accepted project presentations and a panel discussion. Furthermore, two workshops are organised by the EU project OpenUp (

In connection with the conference, the European Open Science Policy Platform (OSPP) will meet the day before on 20 March 2017. The OSPP advises the European Commission on how to further develop and practically implement the European Open Science policy.

Don’t miss it: the Barcamp Open Science  will be held on 20 March 2017.
