  • actionuni Open Science event 2021

    Together with Prabitha Urwyler and Rashmi Rai-Rawat from actionuni, I organized a workshop on „Open Science: What it is and what it means for you as early-career researcher“. The event took place on 29 April 2021 and was open to all early-career researchers of Switzerland. I first introduced the topic of Open Science; participants then worked in groups to identify the structural conditions of their home university. The slides for the workshop are available on zenodo; a short report can be found here. The introduction on Open Science will soon be available as podcast.

    I am giving a presentation at the UZH Summer school on „Open Science Identifiers“ and will hold a workshop on „Open Access Publishing in the Humanities and Social Sciences“ – slides for both presentation and workshop are available from OSF.
