LA Referencia and CERN enter into agreement to promote and expand Open Science in Latin America

On Wednesday, October 24, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the Council of LA Referencia and CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) to facilitate the use of the Zenodo repository for Latin American researchers and institutions.

In a ceremony held in Conicyt, Chile offices, it was highlighted that access to underlying research data is fundamental in order to validate the research results, create new knowledge, and ensure that publicly funded research is available to the public, since, in the case of Latin America, the vast majority of R & D is financed using public funds.

Once again following our yearly tradition, OpenAIRE joins forces with FOSTER to host= a new series of webinars and tutorials during Open Access Week 2018 (October 22 - 26).

You’ll have the chance to subscribe to dedicated ‘tracks’, each of which involves reviewing 1 or 2 short online tutorials along with some supporting information. We’ll even throw in an old-fashioned webinar here and there! You can subscribe to one (or all!) of these tracks. You can browse the tutorials and learning materials at your own pace, and then bring any questions you might have to dedicated Q&A sessions during Open Access Week. We'll have a range of Open Science experts on hand to help answer your questions.
