Open Access Talk on 24 June 2021: "Using scientific publications securely with Creative Commons licences" (translation of the original German title)

Creative Commons (CC) licences are model agreements that are used worldwide to enable the free use of copyrighted works in a legally secure manner. In the Open Access Talk "Using Scientific Publications Securely with Creative Commons Licences" (original title in German) on Thursday, 24 June 2021, at 2 p.m., Dr. Christoph Bruch, consultant at the Helmholtz Open Science Office of the Helmholtz Association, will discuss the legal basis for CC licences as well as their different forms. The free online seminar is aimed at scientists, students, advisors and all interested parties. No previous knowledge is necessary for participation.

The lecture is in German and will focus on the following questions, among others:

  • Why should I place my publications under a Creative Commons licence?
  • When can I grant a Creative Commons licence?
  • What do I allow when granting a specific type of CC licence?

After a talk of about 45 minutes, there will be an opportunity to ask questions. No registration is required. The room will be opened shortly before the event begins. You can participate via this link:
