Athena Research Center, the Hellenic Academic Libraries Link and the University of Cyprus Library, being the National Open Access Desks for Greece and Cyprus respectively, are organising yet another webinar on Open Science, this time focused on the General Data Protection Regulation and scientific data.
OpenAIRE Webinar: Open Science and Personal Data: applying the General Data Protection Regulation in today's digital science
With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in force from May 2018, the purpose of the webinar is to inform Greek and Cypriot researchers on how to comply with it by adapting to behaviours for proper management of research data that are particularly of personal or sensitive interest. The webinar aims to provide examples of best GDPR compliant practices in a research lifecycle as well as to give advice to everyday issues that researchers are facing on this matter.

During this internal OpenAIRE webinar, aimed at NOADs and consortium partners, the new OpenAIRE literature repository guidelines will be discussed. We will also discuss how partners and NOADs can disseminate the Guidelines in their communities, but we also want to gather feedback from about challenges in countries and repository communities about issues to make their repositories compatible to OpenAIRE.
This webinar is internal, upon registration you will be asked about your role within the OpenAIRE network.
New guides for researchers and project coordinators
OpenAIRE has released guides for researchers who want to know more about the legal issues related to their research data.
During this webinar, Prodromos Tsiavos and Thomas Margoni take you through this guides and answer questions (pre-submited during registration and asked live during the webinar Q&A).
The first guide is called 'How do I know if my research data is protected?' and teach you about research data and their protection by intellectual property rights. If you want to know more about what types of data are protected by copyright, learn about Sui Generis Database Rights and their influence on your research - this guide is for you. You can access it here: https://www.openaire.eu/how-do-i-know-if-my-research-data-is-protected
A second guide deals with research data licensing. What licenses should you use if you want to make your research data as open as possible? What is the meaning of different Creative Commons licenses and what are the consequences if you apply them to your research data? What licenses should be avoided? Does OpenAIRE make any specific recommendations? You can access the guide here: https://www.openaire.eu/how-do-i-license-my-research-data
Our third guide answers all your questions you might have about reusing someone else's research data. What data can you reuse, how to interpret copyright licenses, how to combine different datasets? Access the guide here: https://www.openaire.eu/can-i-reuse-someone-else-research-data
If you want to know more about article processing charges and how they can be processed in a transparent way, this webinar is for you. We will introduce the OpenAPC project and will also showcase how it works in practice, and how your institution can contribute.
The Open APC initiative releases datasets on fees paid for open access journal articles by universities and research insitutions under an open database license. Open APC, which is also supported by the DINI Working Group Electronic Publishing is part of the INTACT project and located at Bielefeld University Library. The datasets demonstrate transparent and reproducible reporting and allow various cost analysis on fee-based open access publishing across institutions and publishers.
Join Christoph Broschinski, member of the DFG funded project INTACT started in 2015, as he shares his knowledge about APC, OpenAPCs, and also about "Gold" Open Access Publishing.
Athena Research Center, the Hellenic Academic Libraries Link and the University of Cyprus Library being the National Open Access Desks for Greece and Cyprus respectively, join forces again in the organisation of webinars around Open Science. This February, a webinar is dedicated on research data.
OpenAIRE Webinar: Research Data Management and Data Management Plans
When: Thursday 21 February
The purpose of the webinar is to inform Greek and Cypriot researchers about research data and the European Commission's requirements for Data Management Plans. The webinar consists of an introduction to research data and FAIR principles, followed by the EC conditions to then analyse the contents of the Horizon2020 Data Management Plans before concluding to how OpenAIRE assists researchers in that direction.

A moderated course organised by FOSTER and OpenAIRE
Are you participating in a H2020 funded project? Would you like to know more on how to comply with the H2020 Open Access mandate?
Join in this moderated FOSTER/OpenAIRE Course on Open Access to Publications in Horizon 2020 from February 4th to 8th, and attend a Webinar on Thursday, February 7th at 12:00 CET.
Target audience: researchers, project managers, librarians and repository managers.
On February 7th at 12:00 CET a 1 hour webinar was organized, providing the course participants the opportunity to get a deeper understanding of the compliance issues, and get direct replies to their questions and doubts.
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.
