Open Science Café

An afternoon of bite-sized microlearnings on all things Open Science.


Interactive seminars on Zoom
13125 Berlin




Have you heard of Open Science and wondered what it is? Or is there an Open Science topic you wish you knew more about? Join us for an afternoon of bite-sized events at the online Open Science Café. For five hours, we are serving up a rolling series of twenty-minute micro-talks and activities about Open Science. Drop in and have a coffee while you get a quick snack of knowledge about how to make different aspects of research transparent, accessible, and usable for all. Or stay for the whole afternoon and become an Open Science expert.

The Open Science microlearnings will be served by the graduates of the train-the-trainer course from the ORION Open Science project, hosted at the MDC.
