Brainhack Global Event in Marburg 2022

Brainhack is a unique event format that convenes researchers from across the globe and a myriad of disciplines to work together and learn about open science.
In the frame of the Brainhack Global 2022, the Open Science Initiative of the Philipps-Universität Marburg - OSIUM - hosts the Brainhack global event in Marburg 2022. In this virtual event, we will present an overview of several open science tools, therefore we invite students and researchers of all scientific realms.

In two half-day sessions, between 9am and 2pm on November 29th and November 30th, we will introduce:

DAY 1 (November 29th):

Session Name Presenter

Escape room closed science

Here we will discuss why open science makes sense. Also for your research.
