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!

Open Science Communities

Learn more about Open Science Communities in the Netherlands

  • Friday, 12 March 2021

On March 12 at 14:00 CET, Loek Brinkman, Assistant Professor at the University Medical Center Utrecht, will talk about Open Science Communities in the Netherlands. The first one, the Open Science Community Utrecht, was founded in 2018, and has now over 300 members, from all faculties and all career stages. The Open Science Community has three aims: 

  1. Reach and engage researchers to learn about open science;
  2. Inspire and enable to adopt open science practices; and
  3. Shape institutional policies to facilitate and promote open science.

There are now ten Open Science Communities in the Netherlands, one in Ireland and one in Sweden. And an Open Science Community Starter Kit is available to help institutions to set up a local Open Science Community.

Please read the Starter Kit before joining this webinar and Loek will answer any questions you might have after his presentation.

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.

Open Science e finanziamenti europei

Come ottemperare agli obblighi nei progetti H2020 e in Horizon Europe.

  • Tuesday, 02 February 2021
    Thursday, 04 February 2021
    Tuesday, 09 February 2021
    Thursday, 11 February 2021

Ciclo di 4 webinar per conoscere i principi della scienza aperta e approfondire aspetti e strumenti specifici per ottemperare agli obblighi della Commissione Europea. Il corso è riservato ai beneficiari di progetti di ricerca H2020 o Horizon Europe.

banner corso finanziamenti europei V5

Da tempo la Commissione Europea ha abbracciato l’Open Science e la sua visione partecipativa e collaborativa del lavoro scientifico. Tutti i beneficiari di fondi europei per la ricerca sono tenuti a rispettare le richieste in fatto di Open Access alle pubblicazioni, ai dati o ad altri prodotti del lavoro di ricerca. 

In concreto rendere disponibili i prodotti della ricerca significa fare scelte ponderate, saper distinguere le alternative disponibili e gli strumenti da usare. Nonché conoscere le motivazioni che guidano la scelta di un modello aperto e trasparente di comunicazione scientifica tra pari. 

Il National Open Access Desk di OpenAIRE per l’Italia organizza, in collaborazione con il Competence Center di ICDI, un corso indirizzato ai coordinatori di progetti H2020 e Horizon Europe, in cui approfondire tutte le principali questioni su Open Science e Open Access legate ai finanziamenti europei. 

Il corso è articolato in un ciclo di 4 webinar, in programma a febbraio 2021. In ciascuna lezione è previsto ampio spazio per la discussione e per rispondere alle domande dei partecipanti.

The Open Science Skills Curriculum: what does it look like at the institutional level?

  • Wednesday, 02 December 2020

The Open Science Skills Curriculum: what does it look like at the institutional level? This is a very practical question and we seek to find concrete answers that can be shared across countries and institutions. In particular, we focused on sharing information on:

  • The topics covered by Open Science skills courses at the different stages of the researcher career (R1-R4)
  • The learning objectives for these courses
  • The means of delivery of these courses (online only, blended, face-to-face only, etc).
  • The assessment of these courses (and any certification or accreditation).

A multitude of Open Science training courses are being delivered by institutions across Europe (and beyond) to researchers at different stages of their careers. Multiple agencies and groups described their much valuable work in reports and recommendations. However, basic information on curriculum specifics at the institutional level does not appear to be generally available.

It would be useful for those who are designing and updating these courses to be able to benchmark their offerings from the curriculum viewpoint, gaining an insight into the topics and levels of detail that are considered appropriate for doctoral students/early career researchers compared with more established researchers (for example), etc.
