OpenAIRE x NI4OS-Europe series: License Clearance Tool

  • Wednesday, 16 March 2022

OpenAIRE in Greece and Cyprus continue to inform the research and academic community on important aspects related to Open Science, this time through a series of webinars run in collaboration with the NI4OS-Europe project.

March is dedicated to the presentation of the tools developed in the framework of NI4OS-Europe for various groups and individuals interested in Open Science policy implementation and optimal Research Data Management. The purpose is for Universities, Research Infrastructures and Research Services to prepare for the application of Open Science and for its implementation through the European Cloud of Open Science - EOSC. Similarly, researchers will be supported in Optimal Research Data Management, with an emphasis on legal issues pertaining to various types of copyright in data, multimedia, software and derivative content.

The lack of legal background on re-use and the high cost of license clearance are two common issues that researchers are concerned about regarding the content they produce and especially the creation of derivative results (eg data and multimedia). The "License Clearance Tool" (LCT) developed by ATHENA Research Center in the framework of the NI4OS-Europe project (National Initiatives for Open Science in Europe) supports researchers to meet these needs. LCT aims to facilitate and automate copyright clearing processes involving data, media, software and derivative content.

OpenAIRE and EOSC: interactions and contribution to Open Science

  • Thursday, 18 February 2021

For the third consecutive year, the National Open Access Desks for Greece and Cyprus continue their joint efforts to inform and update the research and academic communities in their countries about important Open Science aspects.

This webinar presented the pan-European electronic infrastructure for Open Science - OpenAIRE and the European Open Science Cloud - EOSC. The webinar was supported also by the NI4OS-Europe project.

Lately, there is a rapid change in the field of Research and Innovation (R&I) in Europe. The adoption of the Open Science model by the European Commission has channelled open standards into national research settings. Complementary to new policies that are created, EOSC is being developed aiming to become the European research web which incorporates good practices and interconnects with national R&I ecosystems by design. Research infrastructures are called to support data-driven research and adapt to the new reality that adds value to their services.

The presentation informed about OpenAIRE, its continuous activity in the European Research Area for more than 10 years now and its evolution into a legal entity based in Greece. It also helped to provide a better understanding of EOSC and its operation, and communicated how OpenAIRE and NI4OS-Europe assist its implementation. In addition, it highlighted the changes brought by EOSC in various R&I areas and explained how everyday activities of researchers will be performed as well as what measures are underway to fully support the research process in all its dimensions.

    Tuesday, 01 December 2020
    Thursday, 03 December 2020

Un ciclo di 4 webinar per conoscere i principi della scienza aperta e approfondire aspetti e strumenti specifici per le Scienze della Terra e dell’ambiente. 

locandina OS scienze terra

L’attuale sistema delle riviste ad abbonamento con cui i ricercatori si scambiano informazioni e conoscenze limita e impoverisce il meccanismo di verifica e controllo dei risultati ottenuti da parte dei “pari” e di tutta la comunità scientifica, nonché la fertilizzazione di nuove idee. Inoltre in questo sistema si trascura di dare accesso a una parte fondamentale per il sostegno di quanto si riporta negli articoli pubblicati: i dati. 

L’Open Science è un modo di fare ricerca improntato alla trasparenza e alla collaborazione che ha l’obiettivo di eliminare le barriere di accesso e facilitare la diffusione della conoscenza. In concreto, nel quotidiano del lavoro scientifico, applicare i principi della scienza aperta può comportare l’esigenza di dotarsi di metodi e strumenti adatti che spesso sono specifici per discipline e aree di ricerca. 

Questo corso intende fornire le conoscenze di base per applicare i principi dell’Open Science e dell’Open Access alle scienze della Terra e dell’ambiente. Rivolto a docenti, ricercatori, tecnici, studenti di dottorato, assegnisti di ricerca che lavorano in questo settore, il ciclo di webinar prevede quattro lezioni di due ore e mezza ciascuna, di cui mezz’ora riservata alle domande e alla discussione. Attraverso specifici software si cercherà di favorire l’interazione e lo scambio con i partecipanti, i quali alla fine di ciascun modulo e dopo aver completato un breve questionario sugli argomenti trattati, potranno avere un attestato di partecipazione. 

Obbiettivi di apprendimento. Alla fine del corso i partecipanti:

  • saranno in grado comprendere le motivazioni alla base dell’Open Science/Open Access e le sue dinamiche;
  • conosceranno le attuali iniziative europee sull’Open Science/Open Access, e in particolare quelle legate alla loro area disciplinare;
  • avranno gli strumenti per implementare le buone pratiche dell’Open Science/Open Access nel quotidiano delle loro attività di ricerca (per esempio per la gestione e la condivisione dei dati secondo i principi FAIR, per rendere Open Access le pubblicazioni, eccetera);
  • avranno gli strumenti necessari per ottemperare agli obblighi della Commissione Europea in materia di Open Access ai dati e alla letteratura scientifica;
  • avranno le competenze di base per interagire con le  infrastrutture di ricerca nel loro settore specifico.

Programma: 

24 novembre, 14.00-16.30. Introduzione e motivazioni: Open Science e accesso ai dati scientifici.

26 novembre, 14.00-16.30. Approcci federati all’integrazione di dati scientifici multidisciplinari e servizi per l’accesso e l’utilizzo: l’esperienza dell’infrastruttura di ricerca EPOS.

1 dicembre, 14.00-16.30. Gestione dei dati della ricerca: dati Open, FAIR e DMP.

3 dicembre, 14.00-16.30. Dimostrazione pratica con strumenti e servizi per l’Open Science.

The topic of presentations and discussions to take place is research data management. The event is open to all researchers and to members of research organisations in Greece, both in the public and private sector. 


Title: “Research data: accessible infrastructures and innovative tools in Greece”


When: Friday, 23 October 2020

Time: 13:00 p.m - 14:30 p.m

Language: Greek 


The theme of the International Open Access Week 2020, 19-25 October, is “Open with Purpose: Taking Action to Build Structural Equity and Inclusion.” The goal is to raise awareness regarding diversity, equity and inclusion of all research communities and forms of knowledge. By reshaping research and creating systems for sharing knowledge we come across with an opportunity for a more equitable, diverse and open framework for all research communities. In particular, Greece is facing important structural changes that will allow open redistribution of research data and will facilitate implementation of Open Science practices. 


ARC and HEAL-link concentrated this year’s presentations on issues around research data management and personal data. The presentations will focus on national research data repositories, highlighting their contribution to paneuropean cloud infrastructures and their role in an Open Science environment. Finallt, to limit discouragement in following open practices when dealing with sensitive and personal data, the Amnesia tool for  data anonymization will be explained. 

 
 
 
 
 
Open Access Week: Towards a scholarly commons

Open Access Week: Towards a scholarly commons

Platform interoperability and open access transformation

  • Thursday, 22 October 2020

What does it mean to be a part of the scholarly commons? According to FORCE11, the scholarly commons is an agreement among researchers and other stakeholders in scholarly communication to make research open and participatory for anyoneanywhere. It is not another sharing platform, but a set of principlesconcrete guidance to practice, and actions towards inclusivity of diverse perspectives from around the globe.

In this webinar, we investigate OpenAIRE's role in achieving this scholarly commons, through our work concerning the OpenAIRE Guidelines on metadata interoperability, as well as publication models and services for the Open Access Transformation.
