How open is open access?

Dec 09, 2021 | 04:30 PM - 06:30 PM

Panel discussion on the commercialization of open science

How can knowledge and research be made transparent, open and accountable? How must Open Access or Open Research be designed to serve as an alternative to commercialized science? And how can researchers protect themselves from the surveillance of these large corporations? With a recommendation on a state initiative „Open Research Berlin“, the Open Access Office Berlin initiates a process towards an open and participatory science that is also responsible for structural justice and inclusion. Wikimedia Deutschland has helped to further establish Open Science in Germany with its Open Science Fellows Program and will focus in the coming years on the question of the way research must open up in order to contribute to equitable science. The Open Access Office Berlin and Wikimedia Deutschland invite this panel to critically reflect on the state of openness in light of new business models and to outline alternative scenarios and models.

The Center for Open and Responsible Research (CORe) at Berlin University Alliance (BUA) and Deutsche Bibliotheksverband (dbv) support this event.

On the podium are:

  • Björn Brembs, Professor für Neurogenetik an der Universität Regensburg
  • Andreas Degkwitz, Direktor der Universitätsbibliothek der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin und Bundesvorsitzender des Deutschen Bibliotheksverbandes (dbv)
  • Angela Holzer, Referentin in der DFG Gruppe Wissenschaftliche Literaturversorgung und Informationssysteme
  • Julia Reda, Politikerin und Expertin für Urheberrecht und Kommunikationsfreiheit und seit 2020 Leiterin des Projekts „control © – Freie Kommunikation verwirklichen“ bei der Gesellschaft für Freiheitsrechte

The panel discussion will be moderated by Jan-Martin Wiarda.


The event is aimed at researchers, teachers, students and the science support sector.
