Athena Research Center (ARC) together with Hellenic Academic Libraries Link (HEAL-link) participate in Open Access Week 2020 in the context of activities for OpenAIRE in Greece. The topic of presentations and discussions to take place is research data management. The event is open to all researchers and to members of research organisations in Greece, both in the public and private sector.
Title: “Research data: accessible infrastructures and innovative tools in Greece”
When: Friday, 23 October 2020
Time: 13:00 p.m - 14:30 p.m
The theme of the International Open Access Week 2020, 19-25 October, is “Open with Purpose: Taking Action to Build Structural Equity and Inclusion.” The goal is to raise awareness regarding diversity, equity and inclusion of all research communities and forms of knowledge. By reshaping research and creating systems for sharing knowledge we come across with an opportunity for a more equitable, diverse and open framework for all research communities. In particular, Greece is facing important structural changes that will allow open redistribution of research data and will facilitate implementation of Open Science practices.
ARC and HEAL-link concentrated this year’s presentations on issues around research data management and personal data. The presentations will focus on national research data repositories, highlighting their contribution to paneuropean cloud infrastructures and their role in an Open Science environment. Finallt, to limit discouragement in following open practices when dealing with sensitive and personal data, the Amnesia tool for data anonymization will be explained.FAIR data | Greece | OA to research data | repository
