How can one bring Open Science into an institution, create an Open Science Center, or a research program about reproducibility? Answers to these questions will be provided by our keynote speakers. Moreover, a wide variety of subjects like preprints, reproducible codes, transparency, inclusion, or societal impact will also be presented and discussed at the Mannheim Open Science Day 2020.
