The Open Science Conference 2022 is dedicated to the Open Science movement and provides a unique forum for researchers, librarians, practitioners, infrastructure providers, policy makers, and other important stakeholders to discuss the latest and future developments in Open Science.


The conference offers insights into both practical and technical innovations that serve the implementation of open practices as well as current and pioneering developments in the global Open Science movement. Such developments are, for example, the increasing plea for open practices as lessons learned from global crises as well as recent discussions about the relation between Open Science and knowledge equity. The conference offers many opportunities for networking and exchange.

This year’s conference is cooperating with the German Commission for UNESCO. They organise a panel discussion and a workshop in the context of the recently adopted UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science.
