Berlin 11 Open Access Conference

On November 20, 2013, Manfred Laubichler gave a presentation at the Berlin 11 Open Access Conference, titled "Transforming Research and Education in the 21st Century: The Role of Open Access".

Making its scientists’ research findings available for the benefit of the whole of humanity, free of charge whenever possible (Open Access), is a key aspiration of the Max Planck Society. Out of this spirit, the “Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities” was initiated by the Max Planck Society in October 2003.
