Open Science

Open Science is the idea that academic findings like research data and publications should be shared as openly as possible as early as possible. In other words: As much as possible should be published transparently and made available to the public as early as possible in the academic process.

In the context of Re:ERUA, work package 5, which is led by the University of Konstanz, pursues Open Science-related efforts in the context of ERUA by seizing synergies within the alliance to the end of enhancing Open Science-related efforts within the alliance.



We provide various offerings that are available for all ERUA members and beyond.

Open Science Meet-Ups

Are you interested in discussing Open Science-related matters of all sorts with other ERUA Open Science enthusiasts in a relaxed atmosphere? You are very welcome to visit our monthly meet-ups – no registration required. 

Do you have an Open Science-related matter which, in your view, should be the scope of a meet-up? Please feel free to e-mail us anytime – we are looking forward to hearing from you.

Moreover, we wrote an article about our experiences organising and running the Meet-Ups:
