Digitalisation offers opportunities in many sectors, but also poses completely new challenges for social cohesion. A key aspect of digitalisation is transparency in science, which is propagated under the banner of Open Science.
For the first time, IHS has set itself an annual focus for 2020 in order to be able to present its achievements in a thematically focused manner - two topics are addressed deliberately because it makes it possible to show the many different ways how science and society are interlinked.
Lange Nacht der Forschung
8. Mai 2020
On May 8th the nationwide Lange Nacht der Forschung will take place, to which, for the first time, IHS has planned its own contribution. From 6 to 10 pm, workshops and lectures on digital transformation, the annual theme of this year's Lange Nacht der Forschung, will be held at Palais Strozzi.
Open Up! Exhibition
The ZBW touring exhibition Open UP! How digitisation is changing science shows how digitalisation is changing our established science system and how new types of publication and research opportunities are emerging. IHS will host the exhibition in autumn and invites visitors to immerse themselves in the world of scientific work in the digital age by means of pictures, films, infographics and experimental stations.
