Open Science is meant to spread scientific knowledge beyond borders and change how research results are published, shared and reused. In order to achieve this, the European Commission has taken a straight road towards Open through using different ways to achieve it: Open Access, FAIR data, European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) among others.
Current international seminar on the 9th of April will focus on various aspects and ways to support researchers work within Open Science. We will cover following topics: Data Stewardship, Data Champions, EOSC, Nordic Open Science Cloud initiative (NOSC) among others.
Two workshops held on the second day of the event (10th of April) show researchers digital solutions for simplifying research: "Electronic Lab Notebooks" and "Discipline Specific Protocols for Handling Geospatial Data to Assure Reproducibility".
On the 1st of January, 2021 Horizon Europe programme will start, which is proposed as the most ambitious research and innovation funding programme ever. Open Science will become the modus operandi of Horizon Europe. It will go beyond the open access policy of Horizon 2020 and require open access to publications, data, and to research data management plans.
Discussions and steps we are starting today will help us all swim better in the seas of global Open Research and Innovation.
Event is OpenAIRE National seminar held in cooperation with DataCite Estonia.
