In a 90-minute workshop at the OSFair on 22 September 2021, the projects EOSC-Pillar, EOSC Synergy, ExPaNDS, NI4OS-Europe, FAIRsFAIR and EOSC-Nordic with support of the EOSCsecretariat.eu project, discussed their progress and work on policies related to open science (OS) with the audience. The participating projects have worked together over the last two years in the 'Policy and Governance' Task Force, one of the six task forces established to support the work of the Working Groups of the former EOSC Executive Board.

How can researchers and data stewards be assisted to support FAIR and Open Research, through better provision of training materials about these topics? What challenges do research catalogue providers face when providing learning materials for research data management (RDM) training?
Good practices from universities across Europe On 20 September 2021, FAIRsFAIR organised the workshop "Learning lessons from FAIR data implementation. Good practices from universities across Europe" during the Open Science Fair 2021. The event offered participants the opportunity to discuss a preliminary analysis of good practices from universities across Europe that are being gathered by the project partners, highlighting the drivers, impact and implementation steps behind initiatives taken by ...
How to communicate FAIR? How to spark up a conversation on FAIR with your audience? How to assess one's knowledge of FAIR? To answer these and other questions, Maaike Verburg and Linas Cepinskas from DANS delivered two demo sessions at the 3rd Open Science Fair Conference (https://www.opensciencefair.eu). By using hands-on examples and guiding the audience through easy steps, they demonstrated how the new functionality of the FAIR-Aware tool (https://fairaware.dans.knaw.nl/) can enable trainers to better adapt and tailor their FAIR training to their learners.

OpenOrgs is a new tool created to solve a long-standing problem: the disambiguation of organizations variously involved in the research process. In particular OpenOrgs addresses the ambiguity affecting the information aggregated by OpenAIRE from different research organization registries (e.g. ROR, EC) and populating the OpenAIRE Research Graph.
OpenCitations is an independent not-for-profit infrastructure for open scholarship dedicated to publication of open bibliographic and citation data by the use of Semantic Web technologies. It provides more than one billion citations data which can be reused for any purpose and can be accessed via SPARQL endpoints, REST APIs, and that can be downloaded in bulk.
ARGOS is an open platform for Data Management Planning (DMP), supporting researchers to meet Research Data Management policies and practices in the research workflow. The name "ARGOS" derives from Greek mythology and recalls both the hundred-eyed giant, Argus Panoptes, and Argus (Argonaut) builder of Argos, a solid but rapid ship crossing the Mediterranean.
