OpenCon; Robots, oysters and amber
On November 14-16, about 150 mostly young people came together at OpenCon in Brussels to exchange experiences and discuss recent and future developments in the areas of open access, open data, open educational resources. Amongst the speakers were Jimmy Wales and Michael Eisen, who stressed that researchers can and should engage more actively with Wikipedia and its sister projects.
In the weeks around that central event in Brussels, dozens of satellite events on the same topics are taking place around the globe.
