On June 5 and 6, 2015, Opendata.ch invites researchers and experts, designers, developers, journalists and all people who would like to embrace experimentation with data to participate in our hackdays in Zurich and Lausanne. Open research data from diverse scientific domains will be at the centre of this 2-day creative event, as well as the one big question: how can we get the most out of the huge potential of Open Data in scientific research?
With amazing speakers and team leaders, from Bastian Greshake and his open-source genetics network openSNP to biodiversity data with Donat Agosti or black holes and galaxies with Kevin Schawinski, the event’s schedule is pointing towards the great potential of open research data. We’ll listen, but first and foremost we’ll make things happen, putting in two days of intensive work to make data used and useful — all while having a great time together.
Join us for the next steps in the direction of Open Research Data!
Welcome to the open access/science online meetup on Wednesday 3rd june 12cet/13fin time, as part of the Nordic Open Data Week ( http://nordicopendataweek.se ).
A main point to Nordic cooperation and NODW, also part of this talk, is that we can learn from one another around the Nordics, and bring one another to the highest common denominator in various open data areas. In the Nordics, we’re similar enough to cooperate but different enough to be able to learn from our different paths.
A suggested meetup agenda looks like this
( feel free to add things you think are important! ):
What’s the status/challenge for particular components of open science in respective countries? Can we identify bottlenecks in OA, open research data etc.?
Developing a vision for open science in the Nordic countries –> declaration of some sort? Endorsement?
Something you might want to add – feel free to add it to the etherpad below!

Open Science Lounge is a meeting place for researchers who are interested in open science. The event is organised by the Open Knowledge Finland associations Open Science Working Group and it is a part of the Nordic Open Data Week. The Lounge activities include discussions on computational social sciences, digital humanities and hackathons, working on the Open Science and Research Handbook (http://avointiede.fi/www-kasikirja) and learning about what the science centre Heureka has to offer for researchers.
