The Executive Masters in Management of Research Infrastructures (EMMRI) is an international management development programme tailored to the specific needs of Research Infrastructures.
This Programme is designed to give experienced science professionals the skills and knowledge they need to take on greater managerial responsibilities.
What can these Executive Masters offer you?
- A global network of Research Infrastructure colleagues in similar leadership positions
- An international Faculty composed of dedicated professors and acclaimed experts from research infrastructures
- A better understanding of how Research Infrastructures in different countries are responding to common challenges
- Greater awareness of your leadership strengths and weaknesses.
- Innovative ways to help your organization become more effective.
Take the opportunity to improve your managerial skills!

OpenAIRE is excited to announce the partnership with the Open Science MOOC!
The Open Science MOOC is designed to help equip students and researchers with the skills they need to excel in a modern research environment. It brings together the efforts and resources of hundreds of researchers and practitioners who have all dedicated their time and experience to create a community platform to help propel research forward.
Two flagship EC initiatives, OpenAIRE-Advance and EOSC-hub open a new exciting chapter in their collaboration with the signing of their collaboration agreement on Monday, 30 April 2018. The agreement solidifies the projects’ ambition for Europe to become a global leader in digital and open science to ensure that scientists reap the full benefits of open data-driven science. Science requires a joint effort and new tools are needed to harness all the relevant information within the research process, while delivering easy ways to implement open science. Together, we will provide a set of services and resources that will become part of the EOSC (European Open Science Cloud).
Convergent but diverse, a unique effort.
The European Commission has released a new set of recommendations to the Member States that offer guidance and propose the best way to implement and support open science practices. The new recommendations include sections on incentives, rewards and require action plans from member states with concrete and measurable objectives. They are to replace the recommendations of 2012 which set out clear guidelines as to how publically funded work should be made openly and freely available. This was followed by a robust mandate regarding the EC H2020 open access policy requirements, in which, as well as its many other activities in Open Science, OpenAIRE has played a strong and informed part, especially in its outreach activity. The social infrastructure that comprises National Open Access Desks (NOADs) in each Member State (and beyond) ensures an effective support mechanism for the mandate and implementation of the recommendations.
OpenAIRE welcomes these new sets of recommendations, and the commitment to open science that the EC wishes to promote among Member States. OpenAIRE has embraced these changes already by being active in these areas in the new phase of its project funding, OpenAIRE Advance.
When: May 15, 2018 from 13.00 to 14.00 CEST
Target audience: researchers, research support staff, data librarians
Worldwide there is an astonishing number of tools and services to “do something” with your research data, for instance, to make them FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable).
How do you choose what can be useful for you?
Step 1: find out and explore what your organisation provides.
Step 2: attend this webinar!
We’ll present a selection of services provided by EOSC-hub, OpenAIRE Advance and others and map them to the research data lifecycle. Furthermore, we’ll pay attention to data management planning and to the balance between Open data and FAIR data.
Presenters: Ellen Leenarts (DANS/ EOSC-hub project) and Marjan Grootveld (DANS/ OpenAIRE Advance project)
Ellen Leenarts has joined DANS-KNAW in February 2016. She has been involved in European projects as CESSDA SAW, EUDAT, EHRI and OpenAIRE. Recently she joined the project teams of OpenAIRE Advance, EOSC hub and EOSCpilot mainly because of her lifelong experience in Education and Training. Last year she led the CESSDA RDM project that produced the online Expert tour guide on Data Management.
Marjan Grootveld is senior policy consultant at DANS in The Netherlands (dans.knaw.nl/en/). DANS promotes sustained access to digital research data and encourages researchers to archive and reuse data. Marjan was training manager in EUDAT and has been involved in OpenAIRE data management support for some years. She is also one of the coaches of the training “Essentials 4 Data Support”, which DANS and partners offer under the umbrella of “Research Data Netherlands” (datasupport.researchdata.nl/en/). Marjan loves FAIR data, but is sceptical of the buzzword…
