I'm really interested in point 5+6, and already done some things in this.

  * workshop for students how to work the open way in science & research
    (scientific writing)sy
  * several documents to do courses with open source tools and open data
  * organized an course with 15 students on openscienceasap.org

My opinion is, that one of the key strategies must be to educate 
multiplicators, like teachers and trainees, to teach open methods on 
universities and in education. we should make it as easy as possible for 
them to use zotero or libre office and share it in an open format.

so would like to hear your experiences and see some other work on this. 
maybe an workshop/meetup at okfestival would be be a good idea.

cheers, stefan
