IMG_9850 Greek Research Infrastructures leaders on the next steps for Open Science

2020 - the year of Open Science in Greece?

Self-organizing research communities for open science: Locating Open Science (OS) at the core of European Union strategies and flagships led an increasing number of public stakeholders with an active role in the academic and research fora to embrace this new paradigm, though in a decentralised way. Developments of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) contribute both to accelerating this shift and to introducing a coherent approach to communicating, internally among national stakeholders, and e...

The road to FAIR

The road to FAIR data

This blog post is authored by Elly Dijk and Marjan Grootveld (DANS),  Najla Rettberg (UGOE), Sara Pittonet (Trust-IT)IntroductionIn the old days, all roads led to Rome. Nowadays, they all seem to lead to FAIR data, at least in the world of research. Regardless of one's research domain, the observations, interviews, responses, measurements, statistics, software code, should be findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR). The aim is to make and keep data FAIR for humans and f...
