Science and education are bound together at the latest since Wilhelm von Humboldt proclaimed the principle “Bildung durch Wissenschaft” (“educating inquiring minds”) – and so are Open Science and Open Education. However, providing freely accessible learning material goes far beyond academia and the impact of Open Education can be tremendous: more inclusive learning and teaching, less redundancy, more reuse, better teaching materials and practices, increased outreach, and so forth. In 2017 the Barcamp Open Science seeks to bring together actors that are involved or interested in Open Science and Education from different perspectives. The Barcamp provides a forum to discuss the practice of Open Science and Education as well latest developments and their future.

The Barcamp will take place on 20 March, 2017, in Berlin, the day before the Open Science Conference (21 to 22 March). It is organised by the Leibniz Research Alliance Science 2.0 in cooperation with Wikimedia Deutschland.

The Barcamp is open to everybody interested in Open Science and Open Education: researchers and practitioners, teachers and librarians, individuals from industry or the public sector. We invite participants from different areas and backgrounds to exchange their knowledge and experience with Open Science and Education. The Barcamp will bring together novices and experts and its open format supports lively discussions, interesting presentations, development of new ideas, and knowledge exchange.

Come to Berlin to discuss the present and future of Open Science and Education!

Cooperation with Open Science Radio

The whole barcamp will be accompanied by Konrad Förstner’s and Matthias Fromm’s Open Science Radio (, making at least some discussions and interviews available afterwards.
