Me and my wife Claudia in Galway, IRL
I'm Carsten Elsner from Braunschweig, Germany. I am the Open Access Coordinator of Braunschweig University Library and head of the Open Access and Publication Services team.
In this team, we advise scientists at TU Braunschweig on the use and allocation of free licenses and advertise Open Access in our OA Roadshows.
I am also involved in the Open Access Group of the nine largest technical universities in Germany as known as TU9, where we work together on recommendations for the dissemination of Open Access and the use of free licences. It is therefore of great interest to me to gain further knowledge about Creative Commons.

In my spare time I support our local football team and visit as many games as possible.
In addition, my wife and I like to travel around Europe or visit our relatives in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey, USA.
