Open Science Night 2023

International Open Access Week 2023: "Community over Commercialization"

from 23.10.2022 to 29.10.2023

"Community over Commercialisation" is the call for Open Access Week 2023.

Which business model for open science best serves the interests of the public and the community? How can we prevent a few players from making profits again with the noble goal? Are there other options?

Get together, puzzle and discuss - that's what Open Science Night offers on 25 October 2023 from 18:00 to 21:00 at the University Library.

After a successful event last year, we are already looking forward to seeing you again. The wonderful "Ideenreich" will be enchanted into a cosy round with all kinds of surprises. Once again, we will be supported by the team of the Open Science Initiative of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. The scientists and specialists from the university library will be there for you. Once again, the event is a good opportunity to combine fun with a serious topic.

The pub quiz on Open Science give us a lot of fun and must of course be repeated. A cosy little cinema and delicious popcorn tempted the enjoyers.

The Open Access Escape Room was also well attended last year and we hope to have an evil villain for you to defeat again. After all, a good community is stronger in the long run than a single villain.

Time: Wednesday, 25.10.2023, 18.00 - 21.00

Venue: IdeenReich of the University Library
