Argos

Community Calls

Are you a researcher or administrator of Argos? Got questions on how to write your Data Management Plan (DMP) or how to create your Template and connect DMPs with other data services and outputs? Join us and learn more!

OpenAIRE is running a series of community calls for Argos to support all researchers in meeting their Horizon Europe requirements by creating FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) DMPs. Similarly, it supports all research performing and funding organisations to orchestrate their data services around Argos and connect data workflows contributing to interconnected Research Data Management ecosystems.

These calls offer the opportunity to discover Argos novelties and learn how to benefit from them in your practice, share feedback and discuss the future of DMPs as FAIR and machine actionable outputs, i.e. as complete outputs that bring validated information, qualified references and automations to the table to assist the processes of collecting, documenting and publishing your data.

The Argos Community Calls take place every last Wednesday of the month at 14.00 CEST
  • Timeline: The meetings will be held every month and are open to all to register. They will last an hour and will provide a perfect opportunity to answer any questions on writing and publishing FAIR DMP outputs and using Argos – provide detailed information on the Templates, APIs configuration, Guidelines, Integrations.

  • Structure: The meetings will have a generic structure with a particular topic of interest each time.
    1. Relevant updates (5 min.),
    2. Main topic presentation (30 min),
    3. Open discussion on community questions and comments (25 min.).

    Meetings will be held for researchers using Argos and equally for Argos Admins. The invitations sent out each month will make explicit which meeting is for whom.
