Living Norway Colloquium 2021 – The ethics and technical know-how of open science in ecology and evolution
October 25 @ 08:00 - October 26 @ 17:00 CEST
This year’s colloquium will focus on the technology and tools that are out there to help us becoming as FAIR as possible. What are current possibilities, what are the challenges and how do we best fill the gaps? Previous surveys from across disciplines have shown that not knowing how to make your data FAIR and open following best practices is a significant barrier to many researchers. We hope this event can initiate a discussion about how to lower this barrier.
We will also discuss central ethical aspects centred around open and FAIR data. How do we give data producers fair credit and treatment? How do we handle sensitive biodiversity data? What’s the future of data embargo and “Data available upon request”? Are there ethical dilemmas related to the reuse of open data? The science community is now entering the open science era, and we hope our colloquium could facilitate discussions around new ethical considerations.
Find additional information on the event webpage. This colloquium to will be a hybrid online and in-person format.
