The advent of data intensive science has fueled the generation of digital scientific data. Undoubtedly, digital research data plays a pivotal role in transparency and re-producibility of scientific results as well as in steering the innovation in a research process. However, the main challenges for science policy and infrastructure projects are to develop practices and solutions for research data management which in compliance with good scientific standards make the research data discoverable, citable and accessible for society potential reuse. The talk will present GeRDI - the Generic Research Data Infrastructure - which is such a research data management initiative targeting long tail content that stems from research communities belonging to different domains. It provides a generic and open software which connects research data infrastructures of communities to enable the investigation of multidisciplinary research questions.
The seminar defines as Open Science practices and processes in all scientific disciplines that foster participation and collaboration, accessibility and reuse, transparency and verifiability in science. This is linked to the use and promotion of an open web and the provision of infrastructures for scholarly research, teaching and learning. Open Science also promotes sustainable impact, both transdisciplinary in the science system as well as in politics, business, culture, and public life. Open Science is rooted in the tradition of established principles of good scientific practice. The goal is to critically reflect traditional scientific culture and to transfer it into the present era of linked-up research. Based upon experiences made in the EduArc project, the talk will place the emphasis on open educational resources and challenges to fully integrate them into teaching practices at universities.
