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.


These are our next topics:

  • Economic actors in the context of Open Science – The role of the private sector in the field of Open Science (November 1/2, 2022)

ZBW Open Science Engagement

The ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics (www.zbw.eu) presents its activities in Open Science: a triad of research, engagement and development for Open Science.

  • The ZBW does research in the area of Open Science, in particular in computer and information science, in media science and digital economics.
    It wants to strengthen the commercial independence of, and excellence in, the science system. The ZBW wants to enable easy and quick access to scientific findings, publications and data.
  • The ZBW is an active player in science policy, nationally and internationally, to implement Open Science.
  • At the same time, the ZBW actively builds this Open Science ideal by developing and integrating new technologies that enable access and remove barriers.
