Events in the SLUB Open Science Lab

Open Science encompasses many aspects - from data collection to research to publication. In our events you will learn how to implement Open Science in your scientific work, teaching and learning.

At the Open Science Lab we offer you a comprehensive mediation programme on all sub-areas of the open research cycle. Here you will learn, for example, what you need to consider if you want to publish in Open Access, how to approach an open citizen science project or how to store your research data transparently and openly accessible.


Typical topics of our events are for example:

  • Open Access
  • Open Data
  • Publication advice and scholarly communication (incl. academic identity management)
  • Open Cultural Heritage
  • Citizen Science (incl. genealogy)
  • Open Reproducible Research (incl. pre-registration)
  • Open Science in third-party funding applications
  • Open Source

Venue and topic: the choice is yours

Many of our events take place directly at the SLUB Open Science Lab (Zellescher Weg 21-25, 01217 Dresden). However, if you are interested, we can also come to you. Simply select the topic for your event and arrange the time and place with us.
