Citizen Science OpenAIRE activities in Education

Participate in the OpenAIRE Citizen Science Initiative

  • Tuesday, 30 June 2020

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

  • Presentation of the School Seismograph Network
  • Implementation of the OpenAIRE approach to enable the school’s seismograph data collections (OpenAIRE PROVIDE, Zenodo), exploration (OpenAIRE EXPLORE) and applications (HELIX, HACKQUAKE). How OpenAIRE products embrace the active participation of schools into the Open Science ecosystem

Open Schools Journal for Open Science (OSJ)

  • STEM focused Open Schools Journal for Open Science, supported by OpenAIRE and how it enables students and teachers to learn about the Open Science ecosystem, rules and guidelines (i.e. licensing, metadata). Also, how teachers and students can find in Zenodo the Journal’s articles and datasets by participating in Zenodo communities in order to include them in their daily routines
  • Best practices by students’ involvement in the OpenAIRE Citizen Science Initiatives

Bringing Nobel Prize Physics to the Classroom with Zenodo

  • Presentation of a series of educational activities aiming to introduce Nobel Prize Physics to the Classroom are being developed and documented in Zenodo.

Q&A session

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

Cooperative Non-APC Publishing Models

Cooperative Non-APC Publishing Models

Joint AmeliCA/Canadian Research Knowledge Network/Coalition Publica/OpenAIRE webinar

  • Monday, 11 May 2020

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

COVID-19: tools, activities, best practices and contact points in Greece

COVID-19: tools, activities, best practices and contact points in Greece

  • Friday, 10 April 2020

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:

  • research infrastructures and their work on developing specialised services,
  • access to and use of electronic resources, tools and data repositories,
  • specific initiatives in the fields of Health and Bioinformatics. 

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:

  • Welcome and introduction (10’)
    • Intro presentation, Elli Papadopoulou, OpenAIRE National Open Access Desk/RDA Greece, Fotis Karayannis RDA Secretariat/RDA Greece
      • Scope of the webinar and explanation of the intended draft national action guide and how this effort fits and gives input to European and global activities such as the OpenAIRE COVID Gateway and RDA COVID WG.
  • Tour de table (10’)
    • Speakers (live) and audience (in the chat)
  • Presentations (7 x ~10’)
    • Natalia Manola: The European ecosystem of infrastructures around EOSC: access to EMBL, ELIXIR, INSTRUCT etc + OpenAIRE
    • Fotis Psomopoulos: ELIXIR-EU, biohackathon, RDA COVID WG
    • Leonidas Pispiringas:  Electronic resources and collections in academic libraries, good practices, accessibility via VPN, etc
    • Thanasis Vergoulis: Bip COVID, Hellenic Data Service "HELIX"
    • Alexandros Dimopoulos: ELIXIR-GR: what are the tools - general picture also about what partners have been doing, e.g. ARIS for HPC, Gnosis + EG-CI etc.
    • Giota Touloumi: General presentation about the Greek research community around health sciences and how Greece participates in COVID clinical trials etc.
    • Kostas Eleftheriadis: Nano research around quality of alternative medical equipment like masks etc.
  • Discussion (~30’)
  • Epilogue - Next steps about the action guide (5’)
The overwhelming response of the academic and research community highlight the need for better communication, more collaborations and continuation of discussions from more perspectives in COVID research that were not covered by the first webinar.
Aiming at fostering scholarly communication and enabling new collaborations, ARC is organising a series of webinars dedicated to COVID research.
 
 
 
Citizen Science in Education: Students as researchers who analyze, study, present and publish data

Citizen Science in Education: Students as researchers who analyze, study, present and publish data

  • Monday, 16 December 2019

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.
