Publishing data and study protocols in a transparent manner, providing acquired raw data and enabling the reproduction of scientific results vastly improves the credibility of all sciences. Our group is devoted to the promotion of open science ideals, such as publicly accessible data, the utilisation of open source analysis tools and free education on current methodology. The overall goal is to both enhance the reliability of statistical results and to advance the non-commercial sharing of ideas. For this purpose, we offer resources (i.e. workshops, hackrooms, seminars) as wells as an engaged community to young and experienced scientists to pursue their research. Hopefully, these efforts contribute to a more open discussion in science.
