Second Forum on Open Science and Transfer

January 22, 2024, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.


Open science, technology transfer and knowledge transfer are central fields of action at Helmholtz (see Helmholtz Transfer Strategy) that complement each other well in many respects. Particularly important overlaps can be identified against the backdrop of the digital transformation: Open science as a standard for scientific work creates foundations for successful transfer. 

On January 22, 2024 the Helmholtz Open Science Office hosted the Second Helmholtz Open Science Forum on the topic of Open Science and Transfer. The online event addressed various aspects and issues around the interplay of Open Science, Technology Transfer and Knowledge Transfer in the Helmholtz Association.
