Citizen Science in Education: Students as researchers who analyze, study, present and publish data

Citizen Science in Education: Students as researchers who analyze, study, present and publish data

  • Monday, 16 December 2019

The National Open Access Desks for Greece and Cyprus are organising a webinar on Citizen Science in Education. This webinar will be the last of the second series of these collaborative OpenAIRE webinars.

OpenAIRE Webinar “Citizen Science in Education: Students as researchers who analyze, study, present and publish data”

When: Monday 16 December 2019

Time: 11.00am - 12.00pm

Language of the presentation: Greek

The OpenAIRE team is happy to welcome as guest speaker to provide information on Citizen Science in Education, Evgenia Kypriotis, a member of the Research and Development Department of Ellinogermaniki Agogi.

During this webinar, Evgenia will talk about the main categories of citizen science projects in education, highlight good practices and inform about the OpenAIRE Citizen Science activity of the Open Schools Journal for Open Science

For years, it was thought that the link between schools and society conceals the essence of learning. In the 21st century, new and exciting opportunities of new technologies, social networking platforms, smartphones, online communities and the Internet of Things, all provide potentials for proceeding with an actual connection between society and education. Citizen science in education exploits the capabilities of today's society aiming at breaking the boundaries of traditional practices. In addition, students involvement in citizen science programs encourages effective STEAM teaching.

From Open Science to Inclusive Science with Paola Masuzzo

Friday, Oct 25, 2019 from 2pm to 3pm (CEST)

A lot is happening in the Open Science world, as everybody realizes more and more the importance of open, transparent and participatory research practices.

However, we tend to forget, in the ongoing conversations, what Open Science means to different audiences, coming from diverse or even underrepresented backgrounds.

In this webinar, we will be talking about Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Inclusiveness.

Masuzzo will make the case that these are non-negotiable and they must be built into the foundation of what we are all trying to achieve in the ongoing efforts of democratizing knowledge.

Plan S compliance for Open Access Journals - what we know so far and where we think we're heading

Plan S compliance for Open Access Journals - what we know so far and where we think we're heading

Plan S compliance for Open Access Journals - what we know so far and where we think we're heading by Dominic Mitchell (DOAJ)

In September 2018 when cOAlition S put out their Plan S for making Open Access an immediate reality, there was concern about how journals would become compliant in the short time available and what exactly was required to do that. The guidance mentioned that being indexed in DOAJ is necessary but that is only one criteria of many. There are other, new criteria which are additional to the DOAJ ones. DOAJ, among others, is mentioned as a key player in the certification process so the DOAJ Team have looked very carefully at what is being asked. One of the problems is that the exact data to be captured for those requirements have not yet been set and work by cOAlition S to do that is only slated to start imminently. In this presentation, I will explain what those extra Plan S criteria might be and how we think that they might be measured and captured. I will explain how we think the certification process, at least at DOAJ, might go and what the difference is between DOAJ certification and Plan S certification. 



Hellenic Data Service: Navigating through the national data repository and good practices for analysing data

Hellenic Data Service: Navigating through the national data repository and good practices for analysing data

  • Thursday, 24 October 2019

Το Ερευνητικό Κέντρο «Αθηνά» λαμβάνει φέτος μέρος στην Εβδομάδα Ανοικτής Πρόσβασης και σας προσκαλεί, σε συνεργασία με τον Σύνδεσμο Ελληνικών Ακαδημαϊκών Βιβλιοθηκών, σε webinar που αφορά στη γνωριμία με την Εθνική Υπηρεσία Δεδομένων “HELIX”. Το διαδικτυακό σεμινάριο διοργανώνεται στο πλαίσιο εκπαιδευτικών και ενημερωτικών δράσεων του Εθνικού Κόμβου του OpenAIRE για την Ανοικτή Πρόσβαση στην Ελλάδα και του Εθνικού Κόμβου της Πρωτοβουλίας για τα Ερευνητικά Δεδομένα (RDA Greek Node) που σκοπό έχουν την ενημέρωση της ερευνητικής, βιβλιοθηκονομικής και ακαδημαϊκής κοινότητας για εθνικές υπηρεσίες που υποστηρίζουν δραστηριότητες Ανοικτής Επιστήμης.

OpenAIRE & RDA Webinar: “Ελληνική Υπηρεσία Δεδομένων: Πλοήγηση στο αποθετήριο δεδομένων και καλές πρακτικές για ανάλυση δεδομένων”

Πότε; Πέμπτη 24 Οκτωβρίου 2019
Ώρα; 11:00 πμ -12:00 το μεσημέρι

Θέμα της φετινής εβδομάδας Ανοικτής Πρόσβασης αποτελεί η ισότητα στην πληροφόρηση και στη γνώση, με μότο “Open for Whom? Equity in Open Knowledge”. Σε αυτό το πνεύμα, θα παρουσιαστεί από τον Γεώργιο Χατζηγεωργακίδη, συνεργάτης του Ερευνητικού Κέντρου “Αθηνά”, η Ελληνική Υπηρεσία Δεδομένων “HELIX”, η οποία έχει αναπτυχθεί με βάση τις αρχές της Ανοικτής Επιστήμης και προωθεί την ελεύθερη, χωρίς κόστος, χρήση των επιμέρους εργαλείων, υπηρεσιών και πληροφοριών/ δεδομένων που αναπτύσσει και διατηρεί σε ερευνητές, εκπαιδευτικούς και λοιπούς ενδιαφερόμενους ανά τη χώρα. 

Το webinar εκτυλίσσεται σε δύο μέρη: α. παρουσίαση του τρόπου λειτουργίας και αλληλεπίδραση με τον κατάλογο δεδομένων (HELIX Data) και, β. παρουσίαση καλών πρακτικών ανάλυσης δεδομένων μέσα από τη χρήση του ψηφιακού εργαστηρίου (HELIX Lab) της πλατφόρμας HELIX. Πιο συγκεκριμένα, θα παρουσιαστεί ο τρόπος δημιουργίας, μεταφόρτωσης (upload), δημοσίευσης και αναζήτησης ανοικτών συνόλων δεδομένων στον κατάλογο, καθώς και παραδείγματα ανάλυσης υπαρχόντων συνόλων δεδομένων με τη χρήση των σημειωματαρίων (notebooks) στο ψηφιακό εργαστήριο.

This year’s Open Access Week motto is “Open for Whom? Equity in Open Knowledge”, thus placing the principle of equity in knowledge sharing and information access at the epicentre. Following this spirit, Georgios Chatzigeorgakidis, research associate at Athena Research Center, will be talking about the Hellenic Data Service “HELIX”, a national service which has been developed according to Open Science principles. 

The webinar unfolds in two parts: a. introduction to HELIX functionalities and available ways of interacting with the HELIX Data and, b. presentation of good practices for analysing data using the lab service (HELIX Lab). More specifically, the processes of creating, uploading, publishing and searching for open datasets in the HELIX Data will be explained as well as examples of analysing existing datasets using HELIX Lab Jupyter notebooks will be described. 

Horizon 2020 Open Science Policies and beyond

Horizon 2020 Open Science Policies and beyond

Horizon 2020 Open Science Policies and beyond by Emilie Hermans (OpenAIRE)

The global shift towards making research findings available free of charge and sharing and opening up the research process, so-called 'Open Science’, has been a core strategy in the European Commission to improve knowledge circulation and innovation.

It is illustrated in particular by the Open Science policies for the EC's framework programme. This webinar will talk about the OS policies for open access to scientific publications and the pilot for research data in Horizon 2020, followed by a preview of what to expect for Open Science in the new Horizon Europe programme.

An overview of the polices will be followed by ample time for questions in this "Ask me Anything" session.
