German-language workshops we recommend are:

  • On 09 February 2021 (11:00 - 12:00), Frauke Ziedorn of Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB) Hannover will give advice on making your research data available to the community in her lecture "Forschungsdaten & Open Access - so publizieren Sie Ihre Daten".
  • On 11 February 2021 (14:00 - 15:00), Lena Dreher will discuss the legal requirements for research data in projects funded by the EU Commission in her lecture "Open Data in EU-Projekten". The legal text is broken down into individual components, so that project coordinators learn what requirements they need to fulfil at which point. Lena Dreher is responsible for the OpenAIRE project at the National Open Access Desk Germany.

These events require no previous knowledge of open science. Registration is not required. The room will be opened a few minutes before the start of the event. The URL for participating is:, opens an external URL in a new window
