Open Access Week 2018

Apr 14, 2019

Join OpenAIRE and FOSTER for a series of webinars and tutorials for the Open Access Week.

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).

This year, we’re going for an interactive, mixed approach. 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 and we’ll provide you with all relevant information you need the week starting October 15. 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.

All tutorials and webinars will be accessible without subscribing. However, if you would like to submit any questions beforehand, receive reminders or want to be kept in the loop afterwards, you’ll need to register (there is only one form, in this you can register for all tracks and webinars you want to attend).
