OpenAIRE Legal Policy Webinars

Register now for two webinars in our Legal Policy Webinar series!

  • Wednesday, 29 April 2020
    Monday, 04 May 2020

OpenAIRE is happy to announce two public webinars in our Legal Policy Webinar series: one on Wednesday April 29th, and the other on Monday May 4th, at 2 PM CEST

How do you deal with sensitive personal data in biomedical research? What are potential privacy issues when using personal data for your research? What do you need to know about the GDPR and the new PSI directive?  

In these webinars, our experts Prodromos Tsiavos (Senior Legal Advisor - ARC/ Head of Digital and Innovation - Onassis Group), Thomas Margoni (CREATE Glasgow) and Jacques Flores Dourojeanni (Research Data Management Consultant Utrecht University Library) will provide a legal perspective on research data management - both theoretical and practical. Given the current health crisis, the practical examples will focus on biomedical sciences and medical data - but the webinars will be relevant for researchers and research admin from all fields (including social sciences and humanities). 

We invite researchers and research support staff to join these webinars. The webinar on April 29th will have a researcher-centered approach, while the webinar on May 4th will focus on research support and advice services. Of course , you are welcome to attend both webinars, but take into account that there might be some overlap. 

Both webinars will allow for generous Q&A time, and you have the possibility to submit your questions at registration. 

You will receive the webinar link upon registration and in the reminder email sent in the morning of the webinar. 

29th April 2 PM CEST: Webinar aimed at PhD students/ researchers : recommendations for researchers on reusing data -  legal aspects: what you need to know about GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and PSI (Public Sector Information) Directive - common misperceptions and troubleshooting -  practical examples. 

4th May 2 PM CEST: Webinar aimed at research support staff: what are relevant things to know when it comes to GDPR, new PSI directive and IPR - how to advise researchers - common misperceptions and troubleshooting - practical examples.

COVID-19: tools, activities, best practices and contact points in Greece

COVID-19: tools, activities, best practices and contact points in Greece

  • Friday, 10 April 2020

Athena Research Centre (ARC), in the context of the OpenAIRE National Open Access Desk and the Greek RDA Node and ELIXIR-GR, is organising a dedicated webinar on “COVID-19: tools, activities, best practices and contact points in Greece”

This webinar is driven by the need to collect and promote to the greek academic and scientific community great national efforts undertaken and knowledge acquired so far by scientific stakeholders working around the management of the crisis pertaining to the COVID outbreak. Those efforts include:

  • research infrastructures and their work on developing specialised services,
  • access to and use of electronic resources, tools and data repositories,
  • specific initiatives in the fields of Health and Bioinformatics. 

Moreover, the importance of Open Science for data sharing, open access to scientific publications, development and management of open research software as well as cooperation between all stakeholders involved in the research lifecycle is emphasized. 

The webinar aims to get to know each other and develop a common perception in order to more effectively respond to research groups’ and individual researchers’ daily enquiries at the national level. That way, scholarly communication is enhanced along with our organisations research support practices. 

The material collected from presentations of this webinar, including discussions that will follow and the outcome of a first landscape review for related sources in Greece collected by ARC, will form a national guide to be openly shared via various emailing lists in research communities and research groups across the country.

The draft agenda of the webinar is presented below:

  • Welcome and introduction (10’)
    • Intro presentation, Elli Papadopoulou, OpenAIRE National Open Access Desk/RDA Greece, Fotis Karayannis RDA Secretariat/RDA Greece
      • Scope of the webinar and explanation of the intended draft national action guide and how this effort fits and gives input to European and global activities such as the OpenAIRE COVID Gateway and RDA COVID WG.
  • Tour de table (10’)
    • Speakers (live) and audience (in the chat)
  • Presentations (7 x ~10’)
    • Natalia Manola: The European ecosystem of infrastructures around EOSC: access to EMBL, ELIXIR, INSTRUCT etc + OpenAIRE
    • Fotis Psomopoulos: ELIXIR-EU, biohackathon, RDA COVID WG
    • Leonidas Pispiringas:  Electronic resources and collections in academic libraries, good practices, accessibility via VPN, etc
    • Thanasis Vergoulis: Bip COVID, Hellenic Data Service "HELIX"
    • Alexandros Dimopoulos: ELIXIR-GR: what are the tools - general picture also about what partners have been doing, e.g. ARIS for HPC, Gnosis + EG-CI etc.
    • Giota Touloumi: General presentation about the Greek research community around health sciences and how Greece participates in COVID clinical trials etc.
    • Kostas Eleftheriadis: Nano research around quality of alternative medical equipment like masks etc.
  • Discussion (~30’)
  • Epilogue - Next steps about the action guide (5’)
The overwhelming response of the academic and research community highlight the need for better communication, more collaborations and continuation of discussions from more perspectives in COVID research that were not covered by the first webinar.
Aiming at fostering scholarly communication and enabling new collaborations, ARC is organising a series of webinars dedicated to COVID research.

Open Access, come e perché

  • Tuesday, 18 February 2020

A seguito del successo del webinar Open Access, come e perché del 6 febbraio scorso, che ha superato il limite massimo di 500 iscritti, riproponiamo gli stessi contenuti per chi non fosse riuscito a seguirlo.

Volete conoscere l'ABC dell'Open Access per districarvi con il Bando VQR 2015-2019, che prevede all'articolo 8 l'Open Access per i prodotti sottoposti a valutazione?
OpenAIRE organizza un webinar introduttivo su Cos'è e come si fa Open Access.
Scopo del webinar non è ancora di dare indicazioni operative sulla VQR ma solo di chiarire le logiche e le modalità dell'Open Access e fornire strumenti utili per esempio alla verifica delle politiche di copyright degli editori. Dalle politiche di copyright infatti dipende la versione che sarà possibile depositare per la VQR.
Il webinar avrà la durata di 30 minuti (+30 minuti di domande).

Il webinar è pensato per ricercatori, docenti, studenti di dottorato e in generale per tutto il personale di ricerca che lavora su progetti finanziati dalla Commissione Europea, il Ministero dell'Università e della Ricerca, e che viene sottoposto a valutazione.

Docenti: Elena Giglia (Università di Torino) ed Emma Lazzeri (CNR-ISTI Pisa)
Appuntamento al 18 febbraio, dalle 15:00 alle 16:00, all'indirizzo https://zoom.us/j/324191427
Gradita la registrazione su https://forms.gle/Qyo2rPnBv66SMum76 anche per eventuali contatti/approfondimenti futuri.

  • 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.
