The Niedersächsische Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek announces a job post for an E13 TV-L position. The project "GRAcE - Göttingen Research Data Exploratory - management parameters derived from the Göttingen eResearch Alliance" aims to identify general factors within the research data management process to concepualise (and later implement) a planning instrument which should be transferable to other research locations.

For more information please have a look at:

Please send your application in via the application service ( until April 13th 2017.

The Data Science Game is a worldwide Machine learning competition for students. The competition is related to Statistics, Machine learning and Computer science. You and your fellow students have a good idea? Take the change and register for the Data Science Game:

  • Registration is open until 9 April
  • Online qualification phase will start on 15 April and finish on 31 May
  • Final phase for the 20 best will take place in Fall 2017 near Paris

The third Göttingen HackyHour will take place on Tuesday, 4th of April at 6:00 pm at Neotopia, Von-Bar-Straße 2-4.


  • Tools that give you superpower: A chance to share cool software tools one encountered recently.
  • Very short (10 min max) talk on Unittesting, continuous integration and code coverage, with live demonstrations.
  • The rest of the meeting will be devoted to an open hacking space where everybody can explore their own projects, interests, and exchange ideas and coding problems.

Am 29.03.2017 findet an der TIB in Hannover der 7. Workshop der DINI/nestor AG Forschungsdaten unter dem Titel "Persistent Identifier für Forschungsdaten" statt. Der Workshop gibt praktische Einblicke in verschiedene PID-Systeme (DOI, handle, URN) und deren Anwendungsmöglichkeiten.

The next info event for researchers at UMG on research data management will take place from 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. in lecture hall 81 on Friday December 9, 2016. 


Date: 6 December 2016, 14.00-17.00

Venue: University of Göttingen, State and University Library, Platz der Göttinger Sieben 1

For: All fans of Open Science in Göttingen!

Think scholarship should be more open, transparent and inclusive? Want to publish more openly? Concerned about reproducibility in research? Think data should be available for all? Want to find ways to be more collaborative, open and multidisciplinary in your work?

Whatever your career stage or background, we invite you to join us for this informal workshop to meet like-minded people from across campus, exchange ideas and experiences, and start working to foster Open Science here in Göttingen!

Scholarly communication has been slow to change to make full use of digital technologies. Most articles and books still look a lot like they did 300 years ago. Results appear months or years later than they should due to delays in peer review or publishing processes. Research is increasingly proving not to be reproducible. Potentially valuable datasets remain locked up on researchers’ hard-drives after projects have finished rather than being openly available on the Web for fresh analyses. Billions are poured into funding research, whose results are then given for free to publishers to lock up behind paywalls and embargoes, to be sold back to those same researchers.

The University of Göttingen is working to change this through, e.g., policies for Open Access and Research Data, services offered by the Göttingen State and University Library, infrastructure provided by the Göttingen eResearch Alliance, and leading involvement in international Open Science projects like But Open Science is more than policies, services and projects – it’s about the practices, mindset and passion of researchers like you! This event hence aims to foster a new network of Open Scientists here in Göttingen, to bring together like-minded researchers to explore how we can pool our ideas, energy and skills to drive the evolution of the scholarly communications system.


Topics for discussion will include:

  • Open Science skills
  • Open collaboration and advocacy
  • Open data and data management
  • Open Access services
  • Open Peer Review
  • Intellectual property rights

If you would like to contribute to the programme with either a poster or a short contribution to one of the topics above please just let us know.
