os4os – stands for open science for open societies and is a non-profit organization with the purpose of promoting science, research and education.
To address these issues, we initiate projects in the areas of Open Science, Citizen Science, Open Data, Open Source, Smart City and Open Innovation.
We also focus on the transfer of research results to civil society and companies, developing appropriate methods and tools.
Research data have a high reusability potential outside the realm of science and academia. At the moment Open Science is predominantly equated with Open Access. Open access to research data, as well as visibility and reusability are still a long way of.
One of our main goals is the creation and operation of the information portal openscience.eu. The portal will provide comprehensive and up-to-date content on open science as well as research content openly accessible and visually understandable and will also be used by non-scientists.
We would like to explore e.g.
• What role does Open Science play in opening up science?
• How will research data be handled in the future?
• How can stakeholders without a scientific background use these data?
• How can teaching and research institutions prepare to face the challenges of the digital age?
Who are we?
We are a team of scientists, research managers and media experts with many years of professional experience at universities and research institutes.
As a result, we are active both in Europe and internationally and have a very good network.
