Publié le 25 novembre 2015, par Thérèse Hameau

The Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) cordially invites you to participate in the Open Science Days 2016.

The event will take place at the Harnack House in Berlin and is going to extend over one and a half days (February 17/18).

Having no specific focus topic at the first Open Science Days in 2014, we dealt with the various aspects of openness in the different areas of Open Science. At our next event we would like to put an emphasis on one of these areas : Citizen Science.

Citizen Science refers to the growing involvement of amateur or non-professional scientists in the research process. In some research fields, like e.g. environmental research, this involvement already has become a common practice. Other research disciplines seem to be more reluctant and yet it is unclear, whether Citizen Science will be an important factor in all areas of the entire research process in the future.


The conference language will be English. The participation fee is 100 € and the number of participants is limited to 80 persons.
