Volunteer as a data or software expert for the Open Science & Data Help Desk to take place in conjunction with the 2023 EGU General Assembly (24-28 April 2023). The Open Science & Data Help Desk, a program of the European Geosciences Union (EGU), the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) and the American Geophysical Union (AGU), along with their respective partners, provides researchers with opportunities to engage with informatics experts in their domains. Through the Help Desk, researchers can learn about skills and techniques that help further their research and make their data and software more open and FAIR. The Open Science & Data Help Desk will be staffed with experts from the Earth science informatics community to answer data- and software-related questions and to demo useful resources.
What’s new this year? The in-person space this year will be our largest yet, allowing us to feature more experts and more resources within a very prominent location in Hall X2 (Booth X224). This year you will notice that we added Open Science to our name. While we have always featured resources that can help researchers make their data and software more open, we (the organizers) want to acknowledge the growing importance and number of resources for doing so and especially bring some of these into the spotlight during the event this year.
