A course on Open Science and Research Data Management for CHIST-ERA beneficiaries
The Course on Open Science and Research Data Management organised in the framework of CHIST-ERA in collaboration with OpenAIRE NOADs is dedicated to CHIST-ERA funding programme beneficiaries and call applicants.
Given the engagement of CHIST-ERA in Open Science, a new Open Science policy will come into effect starting from the next CHIST-ERA Call, with new tools, standards and support.
In collaboration with OpenAIRE, the training course has been tailored to the new CHIST-ERA policy as well as to the needs of CHIST-ERA project participants. It consists of the following 4 modules:
The course covers all modern aspects of Open Science (Publications, Open Data, FAIR principles, DMP, etc.) and familiarise you with the tools and standards now required by the new calls of CHIST-ERA.
You will find all course material linked at the bottom of this page.
“COVID-19: best practices, tools and contact points in Greece”
Athena Research Center (ARC), in the context of activities undertaken between OpenAIRE National Open Access Desk, RDA National Node and ELIXIR-GR, organises a new series of informative and educational webinars around COVID-19 research. The digital events are taking place in collaboration with the following scientific institutions: National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, National Center for Research & Technology Hellas, Hellenic Pasteur Institute, Biomedical Sciences Research Center “Alexander Fleming”, Biomedical Research Foundation of the Academy of Athens, Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas, Hellenic Academic Libraries Link, and the research infrastructure Inspired-RIs.
Τhe new series of digital events follows the first webinar held in April that aimed at collecting and promoting all efforts and knowledge around managing the virus crisis to the Greek scientific and academic community. This time, the purpose focuses, also, on knowledge exchange based on Open Science practices and on training in research data management and software development. Indicative subject areas to be covered are:
The first two informative events will be carried out on Thursday 5 November and Friday 6 November at 12.00 - 14.00 p.m EET. During these webinars, the above mentioned institutions and research infrastructures will present the latest developments regarding their activities.
Participate in the OpenAIRE Citizen Science Initiative
This webinar starts with a short introduction to OpenAIRE, followed by a description of OpenAIRE Citizen Science Initiatives and activities. More specific, the presentation focuses on the:
School Seismograph Network
Bringing Nobel Prize Physics to the Classroom with Zenodo
How you can participate and how to follow training actions
Highlight: New students discovery in the Open Schools Journal for Open Science: "Since 2009, Kepler Space Telescope has been recording small reductions (eclipses) in the light of distant stars due to the transit of planets in front of them. Our goal is to detect planets in orbit around distant stars from Kepler's mission data, following the Reading Method using two programs written by our team in programme language C. If the readings are detected and confirmed, we proceed to their analysis. characteristics of the planet: Ray, inclination, distance from the star, and especially if it is in the so-called "habitable zone" which will make it possible to maintain life. However, we have already identified such an exoplanet in orbit around the star KIC 1432789, the characteristics of which our team analyzed for the first time." - from
Joint AmeliCA/Canadian Research Knowledge Network/Coalition Publica/OpenAIRE webinar
Discussion about non-APC strategies, challenges and recommendations and a global collective action. Arianna Becerril-García (Executive Director, Redalyc, Professor, UAEM, Chair, AmeliCA) talks about AmeliCA - a multi-institutional community-driven initiative supported by UNESCO and led by Redalyc and CLACSO aimed to provide a cooperative, sustainable, protected and non-comercial infrastructure for Open Knowledge. Tanja Niemann (Executive Director, Érudit) and Jason Friedman (Manager, Member and Metadata Services, Canadian Research Knowledge Network) talk about Coalition Publica and the Partnership for Open Access: Canada's Cooperative Non APC Publishing Model. Jean-Claude Guédon discusses the current landscape, challenges, collaborations, "inside-out" libraries (Lorcan Dempsey's vocabulary), and provides recommendations about fostering a richer bibliodiversity and ensuring publication and access equality for all. And Iryna Kuchma (EIFL Open Access Programme Manager, OpenAIRE) presents the OpenAIRE report Towards Sustainable Cooperative and Non-APC Publishing Model.
Athena Research Centre (ARC), in the context of the OpenAIRE National Open Access Desk and the Greek RDA Node and ELIXIR-GR, is organising a dedicated webinar on “COVID-19: tools, activities, best practices and contact points in Greece” .
This webinar is driven by the need to collect and promote to the greek academic and scientific community great national efforts undertaken and knowledge acquired so far by scientific stakeholders working around the management of the crisis pertaining to the COVID outbreak. Those efforts include:
Moreover, the importance of Open Science for data sharing, open access to scientific publications, development and management of open research software as well as cooperation between all stakeholders involved in the research lifecycle is emphasized.
The webinar aims to get to know each other and develop a common perception in order to more effectively respond to research groups’ and individual researchers’ daily enquiries at the national level. That way, scholarly communication is enhanced along with our organisations research support practices.
The material collected from presentations of this webinar, including discussions that will follow and the outcome of a first landscape review for related sources in Greece collected by ARC, will form a national guide to be openly shared via various emailing lists in research communities and research groups across the country.
The draft agenda of the webinar is presented below:
The National Open Access Desks for Greece and Cyprus are organising a webinar on Citizen Science in Education. This webinar will be the last of the second series of these collaborative OpenAIRE webinars.
OpenAIRE Webinar “Citizen Science in Education: Students as researchers who analyze, study, present and publish data”
When: Monday 16 December 2019
Time: 11.00am - 12.00pm
Language of the presentation: Greek
The OpenAIRE team is happy to welcome as guest speaker to provide information on Citizen Science in Education, Evgenia Kypriotis, a member of the Research and Development Department of Ellinogermaniki Agogi.
During this webinar, Evgenia will talk about the main categories of citizen science projects in education, highlight good practices and inform about the OpenAIRE Citizen Science activity of the Open Schools Journal for Open Science.
For years, it was thought that the link between schools and society conceals the essence of learning. In the 21st century, new and exciting opportunities of new technologies, social networking platforms, smartphones, online communities and the Internet of Things, all provide potentials for proceeding with an actual connection between society and education. Citizen science in education exploits the capabilities of today's society aiming at breaking the boundaries of traditional practices. In addition, students involvement in citizen science programs encourages effective STEAM teaching.
