Marieke Guy
Project Coordinator
LinkedUp Project
Open Knowledge Foundation

Marieke is particularly interested in issues around openness in education (open data, open access, open science, open assessment) and online communication - hence her recent move to the Open Knowledge Foundation. where she is working on the LinkedUp Project.

During her 13 years at UKOLN she has been involved with a number of interesting projects and ventures. Her last 2 years were spent as an Institutional Support Officer for the Digital Curation Centre (DCC) working towards raising awareness and building capacity for institutional research data management.

Prior to this she worked on community and outreach projects including IMPACT, QA Focus, Jisc Observatory, Greening events and UKOLN cultural heritage activities. She also project-managed ePrints UK, Subject Portals Project, JISC Standards Catalogue, immersiveInformatics and Good APIs.

For 7 years Marieke co-organised the Institutional Web Management Workshop (IWMW) series of events with Brian Kelly. The event was designed for those involved in the provision of institutional Web services and offered a test bed for innovative event amplification approaches.

Marieke was the remote worker champion at UKOLN ensuring that the UKOLN remote workers were included in UKOLN activities and integrated into UKOLN culture. Marieke continues to write a blog on cultural issues, organisational attitudes and useful technologies related to remote working.
