Prof. Andreas Timm-Giel, Acting President of TUHH, opens this year’s Open Access Week with a video statement in which he argues that science should be open and FAIR.
Hamburg Open Science started with the aim that research results and data from research institutions in Hamburg, which were created with funds from government research funding, should be freely accessible and easy to find. Open access to scientific knowledge and materials is fundamental in a networked world and shapes the science policy debate. National and international donors such as the European Commission, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the German Research Foundation demand free access to research results and the long-term preservation of research data. With the Hamburg Open Science program, the Hamburg Senate enables universities to participate in current science policy developments and to actively shape the cultural change in science towards more transparency and openness.

The International Open Access Week takes place in the second half of October every year – also at the TU Hamburg – this time from 19 to 25 October 2020. During this time, institutions around the world promote open access to scientific information with events and campaigns.
At TU Hamburg you can expect a diverse, this time purely digital program. Digital tub.talks and a workshop are dedicated to the financing of Open Access as well as to the activities at the TUHH within the Hamburg Open Science project (2018 – 2020). Continue reading
As wrap-up to the TUHH program for the Open Access Week 2018 the library invites to a tub.talk on December 13, 2018, 1.15 pm.

What can we do for Open Access?
Thursday, December 13, 2018, 1.15 pm
Room 0.004, the large group room behind the information desk of the tub.
The opening of the week on October 22 started with a TUHH press release (in German) and the publication of the openTUHH Policy. A Poster Walk in the rotund of the TUHH library handled challenges within Open Access.
Views into the backstages of the library and the TUHH computer center as well as film perfomances made the OA week perfect.

Every day of the Open Access Week a blog entry was published, not every entry also in English language. In connection to the motto of the week “Design Equitable Foundations for Open Knowledge” the following topics have been addressed:
The TUHH library wants to get into a conservation with you about the status of openness in research and teaching under the motto “Of green roads and DEALs! What can we do for Open Access?”
- Which connection exists between Open Access and the Project DEAL about nation-wide agreements for licensing e-journals?
- What does openness means for you and your research and teaching?
- Which aspect of openness is especially important for you?
- Which limits do you see for openness?
