The overwhelming argument I hear from postdocs about not practising open science is that it won't get them a career. This project aims to highlight funding opportunities that reward applicants for working openly, collaboratively and reproducibly. It also aims to save researcher's time by pooling knowledge about funding sources, instead of postdocs, funders and institutions keeping their own siloed spreadsheets. The end outcome? A centralised searchable database of funding opportunities available for postdoctoral researchers, with a website (or other tool) to search and filter the database. A filter would highlight funds available for open researchers.
Dance, theatre, storytelling are a few of the methods young people use to express themselves. What if you could find all these techniques in one place? That place is the Recrear Research Lab – an open access repository of fun participatory action research techniques inspired by the coolest youth projects around the world. The Research Lab is in place for organizations and practitioners to use as well as contribute to with their own techniques.
This project focuses on Open Archives and Arts. In Europe, there is Europeana.eu, an internet portal that acts as an interface to millions of books, paintings, films, museum objects and archival records that have been digitised throughout Europe. However, there is no such thing in Asia, and it is necessary for us to have one in Asia, as it gives access to different types of content from different types of heritage/arts institutions. The project will explore the possibility of having arts database in Asia and the importance of having one in Asia, by taking Europeana.eu as the example.
