Third TRIPLE ThatCamp on Sustainability in Open Science 13th September, Zadar - Croatia

  • By Tiziana Lombardo

Sustainability is easily one of the most pressing matters and most discussed topics of our time. This is as true for the economy and society as it is for research and thereby for Open Science. At the third TRIPLE ThatCamp we want to discuss and brainstorm on the relationship between sustainability and Open Science with you. If you are a researcher, a librarian, an interested citizen or someone otherwise involved or interested in sustainability in Open Science you are welcome to join us at this event.

Topics of discussion could be:

  • How can the long-term quality of data be secured?
  • What governance/business models are sustainable for Open Science?
  • How do tools and services that have been developed within the life span of Open Science projects live on after?
  • Do training sessions provide sustainability?
  • How can we ensure and support sustainability via scholarly communication?
  • Any other topic that crosses your mind!

What is a ThatCamp?

A ThatCamp (The Humanities and Technology Camp) is an “unconference”, a spontaneous gathering without a planned thematic agenda. The ThatCamp #3 is meant to provide a forum to share concepts and strategies of sustainability in the Social Sciences and Humanities as well as discuss the potential for sustainability in Open Science. The event is an opportunity to learn from each other, brainstorm together, identify roadblocks, raise concerns and dream up solutions on a peer-to-peer level. Join us to explore and discuss sustainability!

How does a ThatCamp work?

 The event is free of charge, catering included. Every participant will receive a certificate for their participation. The ThatCamp#3 will be hosted in-person by the University of Zadar, Croatia. Participants are encouraged to produce written and/or graphic materials to document their ideas. TRIPLE will share these with the community by publishing them on Zenodo and the TRIPLE website, as well as spreading them through social media. We draw from them to provide proof of the community’s desires, and advocate for getting their needs met.

Session formats are defined by the participants, i.e. the session leaders. Whether they are currently working on a project, article or talk, and would like others to join writing a draft paper collaboratively, or have a story to share on which they’d like to hear other participants’ opinions, or like to put a problem up for discussion and look for solutions together – whatever it is, everyone is invited to submit a suggestion. At the beginning of the event, those willing to lead a session will be invited to pitch their idea (in 30-60 seconds, depending on the number of suggestions), and participants will then vote on the topics that will actually find their way onto the agenda.
