Open Data for Researchers – Spotlight Event Storify
Tonight a lively crowd gathered at the Digital Science office in London for our first ever Spotlight event; which not only included a top panel of speakers, but lots of beer and pizza.
- Ross Mounce, University of Bath – Moderator
- Andrew Hufton, Scientific Data
- Amye Kenall, BioMed Central
- Alan Hyndman, figshare
- Michael Markie, F1000
- Tom Pollard, UCL
What took place was a healthy discussion around open data, looking at the future of sharing data, the challenges and the possible opportunities.
The event was highly tweeted on #opendataspotlight, so we have put together a Storify that collates all of the online conversation into one place. Do stay tuned for a more detailed blog post summarising the discussion and issues raised.
