17 October Event: 4th Open Knowledge Day in Slovenia

Knowledge Rights 21 (KR21) is the proud supporter of the fourth Open Knowledge Day in Slovenia on 17 October. The event brings together experts from across Europe focussing on two topics: (1) the legal basis for data analytics and (2) open science in theory and practice. This effort is organised by the Institute for Open Data and Intellectual Property (ODIPI), led by Dr Maja Bogataj Jančič, KR21’s national coordination for Slovenia and regional coordinator for the Western Balkans.

Register now and learn about the latest developments in the field of open knowledge. The event takes place on 17 October 2023 from 9:30 to 14:40 at the Museum of Contemporary Art (+MSUM) in Ljubljana and will also be live-streamed (link to be shared with registered participants).

This year, the event will be held entirely in English, as many international guests will be attending.

Presentations will be given by notably KR21’s Ben White, prof. Dr. sc. Ivana Kunda, prof. Dr. Iza Razija Mešević, prof. Dr. Neda Zdraveva, prof. Dr. Dušan V. Popović, Paul Keller and univ. assoc. Dr. Žiga Škorjanc. See the full programme for more details.

Open Knowledge Day workshop (18 October)

As part of the Open Knowledge Day, ODIPI organises an in-person special workshop in English for researchers from the KR21 Researchers Network for the Western Balkans, which will take place on 18 October 2023 at the same venue (+MSUM).

In June this year, the KR21 Research Network for the Western Balkans was established as part of the Knowledge Rights 21 project. The first research project focused on the copyright exception for data and text mining.

Participation in the workshop is subject to prior registration no later than 17 October 2023. The number of places is limited and priority will be given to representatives of institutions that are members of the Slovenian open science community.
