This year, not only are we able to continue to build the momentum for Open Access, Open Education, and/or Open Data in Heidelberg, but we are also doing it tandem with others across the world! Therefore, Heidelberg will host an OpenCon2014 satellite event at the German Cancer Research Center on Thursday November 27th, and EVERYONE is invited!
The event will be an afternoon of engaging discussions, expert knowledge, and an overview of interesting projects supporting OA in the area, and lots and lots of sharing, OPENing up, and engaging with the audience.
A brief introduction will be followed by a selected talk recorded at OpenCon2014. After that, our invited speakers will take over the panel discussion and share their expertise and experience working with Open platforms within their diverse fields. The discussion will extend to the audience: a melting pot of from different corners of science-related fields who want nothing but to advance science and engage others! Participants will then take part in an interactive roundtable discussion where they will cover a specific topic related to “Openness” and share it with other participants at the end of the event.
