Hosted in Berlin on November 11-13, OpenCon 2017 is designed to serve as a powerful catalyst for projects led by the next generation of scholars and researchers to advance Open Access, Open Education and Open Data. However, OpenCon is only possible with the support of established organizations and institutions with a commitment to openness in research and education.
OpenCon seeks to convene the most effective student and early career academic professional advocates—regardless of their ability to pay for travel costs. In 2014, 2015, and 2016 the majority of students and early career academic professionals who participated received travel scholarships, enabling 60 countries to be represented.
