The annual Open Science conference arranged by the Leibniz Research Alliance Open Science, provides a unique forum for stakeholders to discuss the latest and future developments in Open Science. The ORION project will be showcased during the conference on 11-12 March.


Would you take daily inhalations to stay young? In her work “ÆON. Trajectories of Longevity and CRISPR,” the artist Emilia Tikka constructs a poetic scenario of a possible future. The installation is exhibited at the National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm from 23 January 2020.


Art is a powerful tool to reach people. Since prehistoric times, humans have used art to tell stories, communicate complex ideas and express emotions. Now, scientists and science communicators are increasingly using diverse art forms to convey science to the public. Join our inspirational session at the Forum for Science Communication.


Eternal life through genome editing?

If there was a medicine that could stop physical ageing – would you take it? Artist Emilia Tikka’s installation, which is showcased at the Swedish National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm, uses this idea to stage a vision of the future. The artwork is the result of her collaboration with researchers in the field of genome editing. The exhibition was opened with a seminar on 23 January 2020.

New ways to opening up life sciences research 

How can you establish cultural change? How do you implement and embed Open Science and Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in your organisation? These are the questions that the ORION project aims to answer. From the start of the project in 2017, ORION has been exploring how to establish an open dialogue with society on relevant research topics, such as genome editing, and has been developing new ways and collaborations between researchers and the general public. Co-creation is at heart of the ORION project.
