Open Science Conference 2022

The Open Science Conference will be held online between the 8 and 10 of March.

The annual conference is dedicated to the Open Science movement and provides a unique forum for researchers, librarians, infrastructure providers, policy makers, and other stakeholders to discuss the latest and future developments in Open Science.

This year’s conference offers many interesting talks including a report on the new copyright exception for text and data mining for scientific purposes, and a report on a survey on researchers’ attitudes for sharing code.

A list of all other contributions and the link to the registration can be found in the conference website.

Open Science Webinars for Postgraduate Students at the MLU and other research institutions in Halle – 2021


The Open Science Webinar series is aimed at PhD students and Postdocs from different backgrounds and disciplines at research institutions in Halle. Its purpose is to provide the audience with useful information about various aspects of Open Science (OS). In four webinars, a variety of OS topics including research data management, tools, standards, data protection, legal and intellectual property rights, tips for online publishing etc. will be covered. In a fifth seminar, a guest scientist will present practical and specific details about working with and the implementation of open science. It is hoped, this mixture between theory and a user case example might help the audience to better understand open science and where and how to start practicing it. 


The MLU conference system mluconf will be used to deliver the webinars. There is no need to register; participants just need to join the webinar(s) on the day.

The duration of the webinars is one hour, divided into a 40-45 min. presentation element and 15-20 min. slot for questions/discussion. The presentations will be available for consultation at a latter point via the Open Science website of the ULB.
