On July 4th and 5th, 2023, the second German Open Science Festival will take place in Cologne. A festival with a mix of current topics and formats related to Open Science

     • Organized by ZB MED – Information Centre for Life Sciences, the University of Cologne and the University Library Cologne

     • For students, (young) scientists and anyone who wants to know more about Open Science.

Open Science strives for a science in which accessibility, transparency, reproducibility, reusability and, above all, open communication form the standard.

Under the motto "Meet, Share, Inspire, Care!" we are taking up the initiative of the last Open Science organizers from Hanover and Amsterdam. At the festival there is

     • Keynotes and panel discussions on practices in Open Science featuring national and international experts

     • Workshops that expose known practices in Open Science

     • an open marketplace with information on local and international initiatives and services

The festival takes place all day on July 4th and 5th, 2023 in the ZB MED - Information Centre for Life Sciences and CECAD (University of Cologne).

In the evening of July 3rd, 2023 we will also be celebrating 50 years of ZB MED. The future of science is Open Science!
