How you can participate and how to follow training actions

Q&A session

Highlight: New students discovery in the Open Schools Journal for Open Science: "Since 2009, Kepler Space Telescope has been recording small reductions (eclipses) in the light of distant stars due to the transit of planets in front of them. Our goal is to detect planets in orbit around distant stars from Kepler's mission data, following the Reading Method using two programs written by our team in programme language C. If the readings are detected and confirmed, we proceed to their analysis. characteristics of the planet: Ray, inclination, distance from the star, and especially if it is in the so-called "habitable zone" which will make it possible to maintain life. However, we have already identified such an exoplanet in orbit around the star KIC 1432789, the characteristics of which our team analyzed for the first time." - from

Transformative agreements in Italy

  • Friday, 26 June 2020

La crisi COVID ha reso ancor più evidente la necessità dell'accesso immediato alla ricerca scientifica.

Sulla spinta delle istanze Open Science e Open Access, anche il mondo della contrattazione per le risorse elettroniche sta cambiando.

I "transformative agreements" sembrano essere lo strumento con il quale gestire in modo efficace la transizione all'accesso aperto e immediato.

Ma cosa sono di preciso i contratti trasformativi? E come si sta muovendo l'Italia?

OpenAIRE organizza un webinar per fare il punto sulla situazione, il 26 giugno, alle 11.

Ne discuteremo con 

- Colleen Campbell, OA2020: Cosa sono i contratti trasformativi e il loro contesto internazionale (30 minuti)

- Nino Grizzuti, coordinatore CARE CRUI: La stagione degli accordi trasformativi. Il contributo CRUI-CARE (15 minuti)

I restanti 15 minuti saranno dedicati alle domande.

Per motivi organizzativi è necessario registrarsi. Il form consente ai partecipanti di anticipare eventuali domande ai relatori.

Amnesia

the OpenAIRE data anonymization tool

  • Wednesday, 10 June 2020

Speaker: Manolis Terrovitis (Athena Research Centre)
Date: June 10th 2020
Time: 2 PM CEST


Amnesia is a flexible data anonymization tool that transforms relational and transactional databases to dataset where formal privacy guaranties hold. Amnesia transforms original data to provide k-anonymity and km-anonymity: the original data are transformed by generalizing (i.e., replacing one value with a more abstract one) or suppressing values to achieve the statistical properties required by the anonymization guaranties. Amnesia employs visualization tools and supportive mechanisms to allow non expert users to anonymize relational and object-relational data. 

Amnesia is implemented in java and javascript and it can be used as a standalone application or as a service. Moreover, it provides a ReST service API to allow the incorporation of its anonymization engine to other information systems. The tool is available through OpenAIRE and it has been used in several research projects including MEDA and MyHealthMyData.

 

Dr. Manolis Terrovitis  is a Researcher at the Information Management Systems Institute (IMSI) of Research Center Athena. His research work includes big data analytics, data privacy and anonymization methods. He received his PhD from the National Technical University of Athens (2007) and has been with the Department of Computer Science of The University of Hong Kong as a post-doctoral researcher (2007-2008). In 2009 he joined IMSI, first as a post-doctoral researcher and then as a Researcher. Google Scholar reports over 1900 citations to his work, which includes publications to some of the most prestigious venues in data management (VLDB, VLDBJ, TKDE etc). He has served as president of the Hellenic Accreditation System and a member of the Board of Directors of Information Society S.A. He head of Amnesia development in Athena RC and he has been involved in several national and EU funded R&D projects.  He has worked as a consultant at the private and public sector on the design and performance optimization of information systems and he is working as a Data Protection Officer in the National Network for Precision Medicine in Cardiology and in Oncology. Moreover, he has extensive experience on the application of privacy-by-design principles in the information ecosystems.

Accesso aperto nelle scienze della Terra e dell’ambiente

Un seminario sull’Open Science e gli strumenti per aprire la conoscenza

  • Thursday, 14 May 2020

Organizzato da IGG e ISTI attraverso il National Open Access Desk di OpenAIRE, il seminario intende guardare al mondo dell’Open Science dal punto di vista specifico delle scienze della Terra e dell’ambiente.

Quali sono le ragioni alla base delle politiche europee sull’Open Science e come si declinano nello specifico delle scienze della Terra? Nel seminario in programma per il 14 maggio si parlerà delle motivazioni che spingono ad adottare pratiche per rendere la scienza più aperta e trasparente, con un taglio disciplinare specifico, quello appunto delle discipline della Terra e dell’ambiente. 

Il seminario Open Science: come dare accesso aperto alla conoscenza, Un focus sulle scienze della Terra e dell’ambiente affronterà gli aspetti di base e fornirà alcuni strumenti pratici, tra cui:

  • le motivazioni alla base dell’Open Science
  • l’Open Access alla letteratura scientifica
  • la gestione dei dati della ricerca (aspetti legali, dati FAIR e dati open)
  • l’Open Science e le infrastrutture europee per le scienze della Terra e dell’ambiente.

Saranno fornite indicazioni su strumenti e buone pratiche utili a inserire la scienza aperta nel ciclo quotidiano della ricerca, mostrandone i vantaggi e le implicazioni etiche. Una parte del seminario sarà dedicata agli obblighi previsti dai finanziamenti della Commissione Europea in H2020 e nel prossimo programma quadro Horizon Europe. Inoltre si getterà uno sguardo ai  passi compiuti in questi anni dalla Commissione Europea a favore della Open Science, anche attraverso la costituzione di Infrastrutture di ricerca dedicata alle scienze della Terra e dell’ambiente.
