ENVRI Open Science Trek campaign – Open your science and prosper!

ENVRI community organizes a virtual campaign replacing the originally planned Townhall meeting at EGU 2020. You can read more information about the campaign and how you can get involved below.



Why you should participate?

Are you a scientist who knows what the open science is but you are not completely sure what you can do to make your science open and still benefit out of it?

Perhaps you are  little sceptical about the value of open science or the ownership of scientific data and resources….

Then come to Twitter or Youtube and discuss with us questions, like:

  • Who pays in Open Science environment?
  • What does Open Science mean for your career? 
  • What are the technological challenges of Open Science?
  • What does the future holds for scientific data?

When you should get involved?

Each day from May 5 until May 7, at 1pm CEST,  ENVRI community will release one video discussing the key issues in Open Science in Geosciences.

  • On Tuesday May 5th, Wouter Los will talk about the idea of COMMON DATA MARKETPLACE – The recording will be available here
  • On Wednesday 6th, Sarah Callaghan, the editor-in-chief of the open access journal Patterns, will speak about the OPEN ACCESS BUSINESS MODEL – The recording will be available here
  • On Thursday 7th, Daniele Bailo will talk about the TECHNOLOGY CHALLENGES OF OPEN SCIENCE

Where you can find videos?

A short teaser will be released through our Twitter channel, whereas the full videos will be uploaded to ENVRI community YouTube channel and here on our website.

Where you can join the discussion and ask questions?

Come, Question and Discuss on key issues you have with open science in Geosciences at ENVRI community Twitter channel or under each video published on our YouTube channel.

You will be able to raise any question or start a discussion from 1pm CEST after the videos are published – the speakers and other ENVRI colleagues will be eager to talk to you and answer your questions.

Our speakers are also happy to answer your questions later by an email (find their contact information by clicking on their name above)

Being interested?

If you cannot wait until Tuesday 5th, you can already read a Star Trek inspired story by Wouter, who is describing his idea of Common data marketplace. Remember that Wouter will talk about the marketplace in more detail on Monday 5th!
