Open Data, Open Science and Research Results Exploitation
This OpenAIRE and EOSC-hub webinar covers Horizon 2020 rules and good practices approaches to addressing Open Data, Open Science and research results exploitation in Consortium Agreements and in Data Management Plans. It also specifically covers the issues of concern between Open Science and exploitation (patents, spin offs/ outs, confidentiality), business planning and licensing strategies.
Date: Friday, 29 November at 2:00pm CET
This webinar is organised in collaboration with EOSC-Hub
Research Data Management and Legal issues related to research data by S. Venkataraman (DCC) and Thomas Margoni (CREATe)
In this 'double bill' webinar, we first hear about the basic principles of Research Data Management, explained by S. Venkataraman from Digital Curation Centre (DCC). Participants are pointed to essential tools and standards, as well as a number of good practices related to RDM and data management planning.
In the second part of the webinar, Thomas Margoni from CREATe illustrates the legal framework around the complex issue of data ownership and will try to explain in non legal terms what the law says, what researchers need to know, what is the role of Open Science principles in this area, and what kind of supporting material OpenAIRE has produced to assist researchers.
This webinar is organised in collaboration with EOSC-Hub
Athena Research Center (ARC), the Hellenic Academic Libraries Link (HEAL-Link) and the University of Cyprus Library, being the National Open Access Desks for Greece and Cyprus respectively, organised a webinar on Data Stewardship in continuation of their “Open Science webinar series”.
OpenAIRE webinar: “The role and value of data stewards in Universities: a TU Delft case study on data stewardship”
The OpenAIRE team welcomed as guest speakers to present their work at the TU Delft in the Netherlands: Marta Teperek, Data Stewardship project coordinator and Esther Plomp, data steward of the Faculty of Applied Sciences.
During the webinar Marta talks about the Data Stewardship project at TU Delft. To comprehensively address disciplinary data management needs around the campus, TU Delft appointed a dedicated Data Steward at every faculty. During this webinar you will find out who are the data stewards, what background do they have, what support do they offer to the research community and how are they funded. In addition, Marta also discusses some key challenges and future plans.

New guides for researchers and project coordinators
OpenAIRE has released guides for researchers who want to know more about the legal issues related to their research data.
During this webinar, Prodromos Tsiavos and Thomas Margoni take you through this guides and answer questions (pre-submited during registration and asked live during the webinar Q&A).
The first guide is called 'How do I know if my research data is protected?' and teach you about research data and their protection by intellectual property rights. If you want to know more about what types of data are protected by copyright, learn about Sui Generis Database Rights and their influence on your research - this guide is for you. You can access it here: https://www.openaire.eu/how-do-i-know-if-my-research-data-is-protected
A second guide deals with research data licensing. What licenses should you use if you want to make your research data as open as possible? What is the meaning of different Creative Commons licenses and what are the consequences if you apply them to your research data? What licenses should be avoided? Does OpenAIRE make any specific recommendations? You can access the guide here: https://www.openaire.eu/how-do-i-license-my-research-data
Our third guide answers all your questions you might have about reusing someone else's research data. What data can you reuse, how to interpret copyright licenses, how to combine different datasets? Access the guide here: https://www.openaire.eu/can-i-reuse-someone-else-research-data
The importance of Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) to build stable connections between research entities such as grants, projects, articles, or funders is recognized and addressed by several initiatives and projects.
When: On January 10, 2019 at 10:00 CET
After all the festivities at the end of the year where family and friends connect, OpenAIRE together with FREYA started off the new year with a webinar on digital connections: the Persistent Identifiers. The Science Europe Data Glossary defines the term Persistent Identifier (PID) as “a long-lasting reference to a digital object — a single file or set of files”. As such, the importance of PIDs to build stable connections between research entities such as grants, projects, articles, or funders is recognized and addressed by several initiatives and projects.
FREYA is a 3-year project funded by the European Commission, aiming to extend the infrastructure for persistent identifiers (PIDs) as a core component of open research, in the EU and globally. FREYA will improve discovery, navigation, retrieval, and access to research resources. In so doing, FREYA has carried out a survey of the current PID landscape, collected a vast amount of user stories in order to identify needs of the community to expand existing and establish new PID services, and is currently working on building a PID Graph.
In the webinar, Ketil Koop-Jakobsen talked about a report on requirements for new PID Services. To identify demands and requirements for emerging PIDs, FREYA collected user stories from their respective communities and networks. More than 70 user stories were compiled, each identifying a specific PID demand from the community. Koop-Jakobsen introduced some of these stories and explained their influence on the development of new and emerging PID types. Amir Aryani, moreover, shed light on FREYA’s work on the PID Graph, talking about the discussion around the concept of the PID Graph itself and how FREYA partners are contributing to the actual setup of such a Graph.
And Iryna Kuchma talked how OpenAIRE uses PIDs for discovery, enrichment, and linking of research results.
The need for professionally managing sensitive data is growing in science, therefore we invite you to join our webinar on good practices, tips & tricks, as well as cloud-based services for researchers.
Date: 6 December 2018
Time: 14:00 CET
The webinar provides information for both procedural and technical aspects of sensitive data management. And we walk you through the architecture and capabilities behind CSC’s Pouta Cloud Services and TSD for sensitive data provided by the University of Oslo.
The OpenAIRE and EOSC-hub Horizon-2020 projects collaborate to deliver services and data management support for researchers and providers of the emerging European Open Science Cloud.
OpenAIRE, the pan-European infrastructure for open knowledge, is working towards fostering Open Access and Open Science in Europe. In order to fulfil its mission, OpenAIRE develops services and tools to facilitate research activities as well as provides tailored support to all stakeholders’ “open endeavours” through the National Open Access Desks (NOADs).
EOSC-hub brings together multiple service providers to create the Hub for the European Open Science Cloud: a single contact point for European researchers and innovators and their partners worldwide to discover, access, use and reuse a broad spectrum of resources for advanced data-driven research. Services in the Hub are offered via an online catalogue.
