Are you developing an open science policy in your organization? Do you need extra support to align it to other policies, or information on legal issues on research data such as licensing and copyright issues?
OpenAIRE is offering a series of webinars targeting Research Performing Organisations (RPOs) that explore policy and legal issues around Open Science/ Open Access. The aim of the webinars is to support RPOs and RFOs in developing and/or aligning their Open Science policies by discussing the elements that a policy should include and legal issues that should be taken into consideration, and presenting the ways in which OpenAIRE can support them in their work through the NOAD network.
The first one-hour webinar will take place on May 20th, 2019 at 13h CEST and targets stakeholders (from research organisations, funders and ministries) interested in open science policies. The webinar will present the policy templates developed by the OpenAIRE project, followed by examples of practical implementation. The webinar will also focus on how to approach licensing issues in the context of open science policies supported by best practice examples.
This webinar is aimed at: research institutions, research support staff, librarians, policy makers, ministries and funders
Abstract: In questo webinar vorrei presentare l'importanza del Data Management Plan (DMP) dal punto di vista di un data steward e di un ricercatore. Illustrerò anche i principali vantaggi e come utilizzare al meglio il DMP durante un progetto di ricerca. Come esempio illustrerò le caratteristiche principali dello strumento DMP più utilizzato chiamato DMPonline.
Abstract: In questo webinar vorrei presentare la mia esperienza come data steward al TU Delft di come abbiamo messo insieme la biblioteca (supporto centrale) e i data steward disciplinary in ciascuna facoltà, per promuovere il cambiamento naturale necessario a diffondere l’open science e il data management tra i ricercatori.
Athena Research Center (ARC), the Hellenic Academic Libraries Link (HEAL-Link) and the University of Cyprus Library, being the National Open Access Desks for Greece and Cyprus respectively, organised a webinar on Data Stewardship in continuation of their “Open Science webinar series”.
OpenAIRE webinar: “The role and value of data stewards in Universities: a TU Delft case study on data stewardship”
The OpenAIRE team welcomed as guest speakers to present their work at the TU Delft in the Netherlands: Marta Teperek, Data Stewardship project coordinator and Esther Plomp, data steward of the Faculty of Applied Sciences.
During the webinar Marta talks about the Data Stewardship project at TU Delft. To comprehensively address disciplinary data management needs around the campus, TU Delft appointed a dedicated Data Steward at every faculty. During this webinar you will find out who are the data stewards, what background do they have, what support do they offer to the research community and how are they funded. In addition, Marta also discusses some key challenges and future plans.

Webinar in Portuguese
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
