SLUB Open Science Lab

Freely accessible, transparent and comprehensible science - these are the principles to which the SLUB subscribes in its Open Science Lab. It offers researchers and students advice and a place for exchange and collaboration.

What the Open Science Lab can do for you

At the SLUB's Open Science Lab, the focus is on participation and there is plenty of space to work on projects in a concentrated manner. Not only researchers and students, but also associations, initiatives and other interested parties come together here for discussions, hackathons, network meetings and other exchange formats. The facilities and services are designed to be open and flexible so that they can be adapted to a wide range of needs. The SLUB has been awarded the Open Library Badge several times for its activities in support of an Open Science culture.

The Open Science Lab supports you in many ways - our offers at a glance:

  • Flexible workstations, workshops and group working spaces
  • Advice on all issues related to Open Science - from Open Data to Open Cultural Heritage to Citizen Science.
  • Mediation: whether it's an event or an eTutorial, you can find out about trends, tools and good practices here and exchange knowledge with others.
