The importance of Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) to build stable connections between research entities such as grants, projects, articles, or funders is recognized and addressed by several initiatives and projects.
When: On January 10, 2019 at 10:00 CET
After all the festivities at the end of the year where family and friends connect, OpenAIRE together with FREYA started off the new year with a webinar on digital connections: the Persistent Identifiers. The Science Europe Data Glossary defines the term Persistent Identifier (PID) as “a long-lasting reference to a digital object — a single file or set of files”. As such, the importance of PIDs to build stable connections between research entities such as grants, projects, articles, or funders is recognized and addressed by several initiatives and projects.
FREYA is a 3-year project funded by the European Commission, aiming to extend the infrastructure for persistent identifiers (PIDs) as a core component of open research, in the EU and globally. FREYA will improve discovery, navigation, retrieval, and access to research resources. In so doing, FREYA has carried out a survey of the current PID landscape, collected a vast amount of user stories in order to identify needs of the community to expand existing and establish new PID services, and is currently working on building a PID Graph.
In the webinar, Ketil Koop-Jakobsen talked about a report on requirements for new PID Services. To identify demands and requirements for emerging PIDs, FREYA collected user stories from their respective communities and networks. More than 70 user stories were compiled, each identifying a specific PID demand from the community. Koop-Jakobsen introduced some of these stories and explained their influence on the development of new and emerging PID types. Amir Aryani, moreover, shed light on FREYA’s work on the PID Graph, talking about the discussion around the concept of the PID Graph itself and how FREYA partners are contributing to the actual setup of such a Graph.
And Iryna Kuchma talked how OpenAIRE uses PIDs for discovery, enrichment, and linking of research results.
The need for professionally managing sensitive data is growing in science, therefore we invite you to join our webinar on good practices, tips & tricks, as well as cloud-based services for researchers.
Date: 6 December 2018
Time: 14:00 CET
The webinar provides information for both procedural and technical aspects of sensitive data management. And we walk you through the architecture and capabilities behind CSC’s Pouta Cloud Services and TSD for sensitive data provided by the University of Oslo.
The OpenAIRE and EOSC-hub Horizon-2020 projects collaborate to deliver services and data management support for researchers and providers of the emerging European Open Science Cloud.
OpenAIRE, the pan-European infrastructure for open knowledge, is working towards fostering Open Access and Open Science in Europe. In order to fulfil its mission, OpenAIRE develops services and tools to facilitate research activities as well as provides tailored support to all stakeholders’ “open endeavours” through the National Open Access Desks (NOADs).
EOSC-hub brings together multiple service providers to create the Hub for the European Open Science Cloud: a single contact point for European researchers and innovators and their partners worldwide to discover, access, use and reuse a broad spectrum of resources for advanced data-driven research. Services in the Hub are offered via an online catalogue.

Aimed at researchers in social sciences, but of interest for other fields as well, Irena Vipavc Brvar gives an overview of the most important legal and ethical considerations when sharing research data. She discusses the implications of GDPR for scientific research, informed consent and ethical aspects of dealing with personal data, and legal issues.
The OpenAIRE Content Provider Dashboard is a one-stop-shop web service where content providers (repository, data archive, journal, aggregator, CRIS system) interact with OpenAIRE. It provides the front-end access to many of OpenAIRE's backend services: Register - validate data sources; Enrich the metadata or the content of the data source; Assess - subscribe to the OpenAIRE Usage Statistics service.
This webinar presents the OpenAIRE Content Provider Dashboard, focusing the functionality of content enrichment from which, repository managers are able to enrich their collections with more/missing metadata.

OpenAIRE has created Open Science monitoring and implementation services for the European Commission and European Research Council in the FP7 and Horizon2020 funding streams. OpenAIRE produces a 360-degree picture of the impact of research funding, whether at the level of programme funding stream or even individual projects. So, now, in real-time, funders can monitor their investment making an impact through the OpenAIRE Funder Monitoring Dashboard which provides funders with tools for a transparent view and assessment of their investments.
