From Open Science to Inclusive Science with Paola Masuzzo

Friday, Oct 25, 2019 from 2pm to 3pm (CEST)

A lot is happening in the Open Science world, as everybody realizes more and more the importance of open, transparent and participatory research practices.

However, we tend to forget, in the ongoing conversations, what Open Science means to different audiences, coming from diverse or even underrepresented backgrounds.

In this webinar, we will be talking about Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Inclusiveness.

Masuzzo will make the case that these are non-negotiable and they must be built into the foundation of what we are all trying to achieve in the ongoing efforts of democratizing knowledge.

Webinar to Support Open Science Policy Creation and Legal Issues

Webinar to Support Open Science Policy Creation and Legal Issues

  • Monday, 20 May 2019

Are you developing an open science policy in your organization? Do you need extra support to align it to other policies, or information on legal issues on research data such as licensing and copyright issues?

 OpenAIRE is offering a series of webinars targeting Research Performing Organisations (RPOs) that explore policy and legal issues around Open Science/ Open Access. The aim of the webinars is to support RPOs and RFOs in developing and/or aligning their Open Science policies by discussing the elements that a policy should include and legal issues that should be taken into consideration, and presenting the ways in which OpenAIRE can support them in their work through the NOAD network.

 The first one-hour webinar will take place on May 20th, 2019 at 13h CEST and targets stakeholders (from research organisations, funders and ministries) interested in open science policies. The webinar will present the policy templates developed by the OpenAIRE project, followed by examples of practical implementation. The webinar will also focus on how to approach licensing issues in the context of open science policies supported by best practice examples.

This webinar is aimed at: research institutions, research support staff, librarians, policy makers, ministries and funders
