Bring your data and learn how to effectively anonymize them with Amnesia!

  • Wednesday, 30 June 2021

Athena’ Research Center, as part of the activities of the OpenAIRE NOAD in Greece, launches yet another round of informative and educational online seminars, in support of research activities relevant to the coronavirus disease. The seminars will inform about new developments, promote know-how and familiarize the scientific community with the use of certain services. This seminar will run in collaboration with the OpenAIRE NOAD in Cyprus.


“Amnesia: anonymization of data with guarantees”


Date: Wednesday 30 June 2021


Time: 11.00 a.m - 12.30 p.m (EEST)


Language: Greek

Public: Researchers, Academic Staff, Research Infrastructures and Research Services, Librarians

The seminar concentrates on the processing of sensitive and personal data to show anonymization techniques and guarantees that are offered via the Amnesia tool.  Amnesia is an open source software that applies k- and km- anonymity techniques in order to achieve guaranteed irreversible anonymization of personal data. The techniques of anonymization that it offers convert the personal data into statistics with the least possible loss of information, allowing their processing without the restrictions of the General Regulation on Personal Data Protection.

During the seminar, participants will learn about the legal framework governing sensitive and personal data, as well as about alternatives that they can follow to achieve maximum compliance with Open Science conditions. There will be a presentation of the tool and then participants will have the opportunity to practice using Amnesia with their own data!

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.

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: Open Science Ambassadors

Open Access Week: Open Science Ambassadors

How can early career researchers boost Open Science? A joint OpenAIRE/Eurodoc webinar.

  • Thursday, 22 October 2020

During this webinar, Oleksandr Berezko (General Board Member at Eurodoc) and Sara Pilia (Equality Working Group Co-coordinator at Eurodoc) will present the Eurodoc Open Science Ambassadors training programme for Early Career Researchers (ECR), and the activities of the Eurodoc Equality Working Group, which aims to remove the barriers encountered by those ECRs who experience exclusion and discrimination. 

Eurodoc

 Eurodoc is the European Council of Doctoral Candidates and Junior Researchers. It is an international federation of 28 national organisations of PhD candidates, and more generally of young researchers from 26 countries of the European Union and the Council of Europe. Eurodoc's mission is to advocate for positive change in the policies, culture and environment that affect the quality of training, well-being and employment conditions of early career researchers (ECRs). More information. 

Eurodoc Open Science Ambassadors

 The Eurodoc Open Science Ambassador Training is a course designed to train researchers in key practices in Open Science. The course was initially aimed at representatives of early-career researchers from National Associations of Eurodoc to act as ambassadors in their networks and is now freely available for all interested researchers and policy makers. Currently there are 24 Ambassadors located in 18 European countries from Ireland to Azerbaijan. The new Ambassadors cohort will be recruited shortly. More information.  

Eurodoc Equality Working Group 

The Eurodoc Equality Working Group was built to support every ECR in development of their career as a researcher, particularly by helping remove the barriers encountered by those ECRs that experience exclusion related to “diversity”. The Working Group adopts an approach that regards discrimination and exclusion as the result of an intersectionality of multiple causes. At present, it is paying special attention to gender and disability issues as causes of discrimination. More information

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.

Open Access Week: Public release of the OpenAIRE-DARIAH Community gateway

Open Access Week: Public release of the OpenAIRE-DARIAH Community gateway

How to make your research more visible and more connected

  • Tuesday, 20 October 2020

A paramount challenge in present-day knowledge production is to communicate research results in ways that align with our increasingly digital and also increasingly diverse research workflows.

Research discovery platforms that have been developed from EU grants and will remain open to the public are game changers in this respect. They support the visibility and discoverability of all sorts of research outputs (datasets, software, protocols,  teaching materials etc.) to showcase a broader view of scholarship and enable a greater transparency of scholarly communication.

This webinar aims to introduce an instance of them, the OpenAIRE-DARIAH Community Gateway. Built on the top of the OpenAIRE Research Graph, the OpenAIRE Community Gateways  work as single access points to a virtual space that connects metadata descriptions of all scholarly objects that are important to the given community.

The DARIAH dashboard brings together publications and a broad range of research data (digital critical editions, plain text, archived data, audiovisual data, raw data, encoded documents, software applications, source code, images, structured graphics, databases, structured text, scientific and statistical data formats) that are hosted by DARIAH services such as NAKALA and TextGrid. As such, it significantly reduces the fragmentation of DARIAH research outputs across the web. A major benefit of such a discovery environment is that it provides scholarly communities with a single entry point to DARIAH-affiliated research outputs. This entry point, in turn, is embedded into the context of a bigger collection of Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage corpus enabling therefore arts and humanities researchers to find DARIAH outputs more easily, as an integral part of their discovery routine.

The webinar welcomes all the DARIAH communities, including humanities scholars, librarians, research support professionals, service providers and national representatives.
