Athena Research Center and University of Cyprus Library, in the context of joint activities performed for OpenAIRE and NI4OS-Europe, organize a webinar to inform about repositories’ interoperability within the EOSC ecosystem. The webinar is part of the regular series of the Greek and Cypriot NOADs that aim to spread awareness to and facilitate adoption of important and relevant Open Science principles by their academic and research communities.
This month the focus is on best practices for institutional and thematic repositories and on compliance with standards and protocols that enable effective and lossless information exchange between heterogeneous systems.
When? Thursday, 11 June 2020
Time: 11.00 am - 12.00 pm EEST
Language of presentation: Greek
Target audience: Repository managers
We are pleased to announce that guest speakers of this webinar are Antonis Lempesis and Stefania Martziou, Research Associates at Athena Research Center and members of the OpenAIRE technical team.
Accessing scientific results which are available on digital infrastructures, such as repositories, is an important Open Science practice. Adoption of policies and standards as well as training for using repositories enhance, among other things, accessibility, findability and reusability of scientific outputs. Lately, there is a growing need for research data and services/ infrastructures which produce, share and preserve this data to follow the FAIR principles. However, data heterogeneity could have a negative effect on interoperability of systems. A solution to this challenge is provided by OpenAIRE for over ten years now, through specialised services which are also supported by NI4OS-Europe and EOSC.
Repository managers will have the opportunity to be informed and explore:
