Open Knowledge Festival 2014

Open Knowledge Festival 2014 | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

To create societies where everyone has both access to key information and the ability to use it to understand and shape their lives, we must build knowledge into the heart of all of our activities. This is a big task which requires not just a global shift in mindset, but also that we build the tools and communities to make such a society possible. We invite you to join us from 15-17 July in Berlin for OKFestival 2014 as we consider how to translate Open Minds to Open Action.

 

This year, these conversations will be based around three narrative streams; Knowledge, Tools and Society. Each encompasses a broad range of open topics that the community is passionate about, and by building a programme around these three streams, instead of by topic, OKFestival allows for greater collaboration between attendees and shared progress across the entire open movement.

 

 

 
John Bostock's insight:

This looks a good opportunity to explore the open knowledge movement

15th Fish Immunology/Vaccination Workshop, 21-25 April 2014

15th Fish Immunology/Vaccination Workshop, 21-25 April 2014 | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

The Wageningen fish immunology / vaccination workshops have been organised annually since 1998. Typically, the workshops are characterised by one-hour presentations given by experienced lecturers, taking time to thoroughly introduce each subject. This year’s (2014) subject is FISH IMMUNOLOGY/VACCINATION with extra attention being paid to the latest advances in fish immunology with emphasis on vaccination. The 2014 workshop includes two afternoons with a choice between hands-on practicals or updates on recent molecular advances in microarray analysis and gene synteny. Further, participants will be asked to send an abstract of their research and present a poster with the best one awarded the poster prize (further information will be provided upon registration). The official workshop language is English.

The objective of the present workshop is to provide participants with advanced knowledge, both theoretical and practical, on the immune system of fish. During the workshop we will discuss the latest insights in the evolution of the immune system but also related issues such as (experimental) animal welfare. The level of the workshop is targeting academic and company researchers as well as management staff in the aquaculture industry. In particular, we more than welcome PhD students, who have a reduced registration fee.

John Bostock's insight:

This looks a very useful short course - especially for PhD students involved in fish immunology

EduWiki Conference 2013 - Wikimedia UK

EduWiki Conference 2013 - Wikimedia UK | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

EduWiki Conference 2013 is the second annual conference organised by Wikimedia UK focusing on Education projects. Wikipedia and its sister sites are increasingly used as platforms for educational assignments, in the UK and internationally. The conference is a chance to discover opportunities; report lessons learned; and explore how the free, open, learner-centred ethos of Wikimedia overlaps current trends in formal education.

John Bostock's insight:

Is there anyone still not taking Wikipedia and Wikiversity seriously?
