Reform on Research Assessment in the context of Open Science

About Open Science Retreat

Only together can we successfully change the way we work scientifically.
Only together can we advance Open Science.

  • WE does not mean scientists only. 
  • WE incorporates scientists, science communicators, data stewards, librarians, publishers, editors, and other stakeholders involved in Open Science developments.

With the Open Science Retreat, the ZBW wants to bring together international Open Science supporters from different stakeholder groups. For two afternoons in a row, the aim is to dive deep into the topics that are of burning interest to all of us.


The Open Science Retreat is an interactive event. Participants are expected to commit to active contribution during the entire retreat. The number of participants is limited and will be balanced due to diversity aspects.

We asked our Open Science community which topics they would like to discuss at the next retreats – thank you very much for your great response! The topic selection of future retreats will be based on these survey results.

Our next topic is

Reform on Research Assessment in the context of Open Science (March 21 & 22, 2023)
