OpenAIRE x NI4OS-Europe series: Rules of Participation Legal & Ethics Compliance Tool (RoLECT)

  • Wednesday, 23 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 understanding of legal and ethics issues arising from the Rules of Participation in the European Cloud for Open Science (EOSC) constitutes a major challenge in the implementation of EOSC. The "EOSC RoP Legal & Ethics Compliance Tool" (RoLECT) has been developed by ATHENA Research Center team in the context of the EU-funded "NI4OS-Europe - National Initiatives for Open Science in Europe" project and is addressed to scientists and professionals wishing to onboard a resource (i.e. services or data) to the EOSC ecosystem. By using this tool, stakeholders have the opportunity to verify before the onboarding process whether their resource complies with the basic legal and ethical standards of the EOSC Rules of Participation.

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.

    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.
