Write up by Hans Zauner of three eventful days in Berlin last week for FORCE2017 discuss ideas, ongoing projects and future developments around Open Science

This year has been an eventful one, probably too eventful for many. For GigaScience it has been eventful too, although fortunately in a much more positive way than many have experienced. While there are fears of us entering a “post-truth” era, there is more need than ever for our role as promoters of transparency, reproducibility and providers of cold-hard data. We celebrated our birthday with Mickey Mouse, and experienced many other milestones.
