EOSC Executive Board: OpenAIRE is there to represent Open Science

On the occasion of the launch of the European Open Science Cloud on November 23rd, the European Commission disclosed the list of the people appointed to be members of the EOSC Executive Board.

The call for applications opened at the end of August this year to recruit 11 experts in matters related to research infrastructures representing all stakeholders, with the task to provide advice and support on the implementation of the EOSC: from the rules of participation, to making  research data interoperable and re-usable according to the FAIR principles, to guidance to service provision.

We are very proud to announce that Natalia Manola, Managing Director of OpenAIRE, is among these experts! This appointment is a recognition of the importance of Open Science and what the OpenAIRE infrastructure represents in Europe for the full success of the European Open Science Cloud. The community and network of National Open Access Desks and the rich set of services bring Open Science at all levels of the research life-cycle and assist in the transition to open research and knowledge sharing. The participation in the EOSC Executive Board, in addition to OpenAIRE’s contribution to the EOSC Portal with its services, will support positioning Open Science as a best practice for research in all its nuances, at the core of the European Open Science Cloud.

OpenAIRE participates in the EOSC Executive Board together with other relevant initiatives such as RDA, CESSDA, Science Europe, GÉANT and many others.

The selection criteria together with the full list of the members of the EOSC Executive Board is available on the EC’s website.

FAIRsharing and OpenAIRE sign an MoU

 This mutual effort and collaboration between OpenAIRE and FAIRsharing will ensure that this interconnected information will provide greater knowledge to researchers and other stakeholders. For example researchers will be able to discover related standards alongside the databases that implement specific standards.

National policy and support actions for research data skills - impact and experiences

This joint workshop by FAIRsFAIR and OpenAIRE aimed to discuss the role of national-level initiatives to advance skills development for research data management. 

WHEN - 28th April | 14h00-16h30 CEST

ABOUT - At European level, the emerging European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) provides impetus for skills development. However, the recent report of the EOSC Working Group on Skills & Training finds that national skills policy is usually fragmented or underdeveloped when concerning skills for research data and data-intensive research.

The workshop aimed to take stock of the national initiatives and discuss good practices, impact and ways to forward for such initiatives.

University approaches to Citizen Science in the transition to Open Science Institutional opportunities and challenges for creating an open and inclusive environment for Research (12th OpenAIRE workshop - 2020)

WHEN – December 9th 10:00 - 12:00 CET, December 10th 10-11:30 CET register here.

ABOUT – EUA and OpenAIRE organise a joint online workshop on Citizen Science to discuss understanding of the challenges and opportunities for universities engaging in Citizen Science, and explore how Citizen Science can benefit from and add to the transition to Open Science.

This joint workshop will discuss themes around institutional support for Citizen Science and offers an opportunity to transfer and share knowledge. The aim is to exchange experiences, lessons learnt, and explore common challenges. To support Citizen Science, the online workshop will discuss tools, guidelines and good practices from Open Science experiences as well. Participating universities will have the opportunity to share expertise, coordinate efforts and exchange advice on services, tools and legal and ethical issues.
