Research performed at the SPOTSeven Lab @th_koeln takes not only the scientific content, but also its impact to the society into account. Our research is inspired by our partners from academia, industry, and society. We are advocating open source tools such as R (https://cran.r-project.org). Open Science (@rOpenSci) can be characterized as follows:

Social challenges stem largely from the dichotomy between what is best for an individual researcher and what is best for the community.
