Intellectual Property and Open Science: Legislation - Practices

  • Thursday, 09 July 2020

IPR webinar final

The National Open Access Desks in Greece and Cyprus organise the last webinar of the Summer season. NOADs will be back with new webinars with the start of the academic year 2020-2021, in September.

This month the focus is on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) for the academic and research community to learn about latest developments at policy level and how they are applied.

OpenAIRE Webinar: “Intellectual Property and Open Science: Legislation - Practices”

When? Thursday, 9 July 2020

Time? 11.00 am - 12.00 pm EEST


Language of the presentation: Greek

Audience: Researchers, Research Performing Organisations, Research Funding Organisations, Librarians

We are pleased to announce that guest speaker of this webinar is legal expert Prodromos Tsiavos, Legal Adviser of "Athena" Research & Innovation Center.

The purpose of the webinar is to provide a brief overview of policies and the European legislation around IPR as well as to show how these might influence the designing of institutional and national Open Science policies. In this regard, emphasis will be given to Directive 2019/790 on intellectual property in the Digital Single Market, Directive 2019/1024 on Open Data, the European Data Policy, the White Paper on Artificial Intelligence, and the European Commission's proposal for the EOSC Partnership. All of the aforementioned policy and legislative texts will be discussed in the context of broader European Digital Policies. Finally, it will be examined how they can lead to concrete actions for improving and strengthening policies at institutional and national level.

The webinar will be recorded and all related material (slides, recordings, Q&As) will be shared with everyone afterwards.

COVID-19: tools, activities, best practices and contact points in Greece

COVID-19: tools, activities, best practices and contact points in Greece

  • Friday, 10 April 2020

Athena Research Centre (ARC), in the context of the OpenAIRE National Open Access Desk and the Greek RDA Node and ELIXIR-GR, is organising a dedicated webinar on “COVID-19: tools, activities, best practices and contact points in Greece”

This webinar is driven by the need to collect and promote to the greek academic and scientific community great national efforts undertaken and knowledge acquired so far by scientific stakeholders working around the management of the crisis pertaining to the COVID outbreak. Those efforts include:

  • research infrastructures and their work on developing specialised services,
  • access to and use of electronic resources, tools and data repositories,
  • specific initiatives in the fields of Health and Bioinformatics. 

Moreover, the importance of Open Science for data sharing, open access to scientific publications, development and management of open research software as well as cooperation between all stakeholders involved in the research lifecycle is emphasized. 

The webinar aims to get to know each other and develop a common perception in order to more effectively respond to research groups’ and individual researchers’ daily enquiries at the national level. That way, scholarly communication is enhanced along with our organisations research support practices. 

The material collected from presentations of this webinar, including discussions that will follow and the outcome of a first landscape review for related sources in Greece collected by ARC, will form a national guide to be openly shared via various emailing lists in research communities and research groups across the country.

The draft agenda of the webinar is presented below:

  • Welcome and introduction (10’)
    • Intro presentation, Elli Papadopoulou, OpenAIRE National Open Access Desk/RDA Greece, Fotis Karayannis RDA Secretariat/RDA Greece
      • Scope of the webinar and explanation of the intended draft national action guide and how this effort fits and gives input to European and global activities such as the OpenAIRE COVID Gateway and RDA COVID WG.
  • Tour de table (10’)
    • Speakers (live) and audience (in the chat)
  • Presentations (7 x ~10’)
    • Natalia Manola: The European ecosystem of infrastructures around EOSC: access to EMBL, ELIXIR, INSTRUCT etc + OpenAIRE
    • Fotis Psomopoulos: ELIXIR-EU, biohackathon, RDA COVID WG
    • Leonidas Pispiringas:  Electronic resources and collections in academic libraries, good practices, accessibility via VPN, etc
    • Thanasis Vergoulis: Bip COVID, Hellenic Data Service "HELIX"
    • Alexandros Dimopoulos: ELIXIR-GR: what are the tools - general picture also about what partners have been doing, e.g. ARIS for HPC, Gnosis + EG-CI etc.
    • Giota Touloumi: General presentation about the Greek research community around health sciences and how Greece participates in COVID clinical trials etc.
    • Kostas Eleftheriadis: Nano research around quality of alternative medical equipment like masks etc.
  • Discussion (~30’)
  • Epilogue - Next steps about the action guide (5’)
The overwhelming response of the academic and research community highlight the need for better communication, more collaborations and continuation of discussions from more perspectives in COVID research that were not covered by the first webinar.
Aiming at fostering scholarly communication and enabling new collaborations, ARC is organising a series of webinars dedicated to COVID research.
 
 
 
Plan S compliance for Open Access Journals - what we know so far and where we think we're heading

Plan S compliance for Open Access Journals - what we know so far and where we think we're heading

Plan S compliance for Open Access Journals - what we know so far and where we think we're heading by Dominic Mitchell (DOAJ)

In September 2018 when cOAlition S put out their Plan S for making Open Access an immediate reality, there was concern about how journals would become compliant in the short time available and what exactly was required to do that. The guidance mentioned that being indexed in DOAJ is necessary but that is only one criteria of many. There are other, new criteria which are additional to the DOAJ ones. DOAJ, among others, is mentioned as a key player in the certification process so the DOAJ Team have looked very carefully at what is being asked. One of the problems is that the exact data to be captured for those requirements have not yet been set and work by cOAlition S to do that is only slated to start imminently. In this presentation, I will explain what those extra Plan S criteria might be and how we think that they might be measured and captured. I will explain how we think the certification process, at least at DOAJ, might go and what the difference is between DOAJ certification and Plan S certification.

Horizon 2020 Open Science Policies and beyond by Emilie Hermans (OpenAIRE)

The global shift towards making research findings available free of charge and sharing and opening up the research process, so-called 'Open Science’, has been a core strategy in the European Commission to improve knowledge circulation and innovation.

It is illustrated in particular by the Open Science policies for the EC's framework programme. This webinar will talk about the OS policies for open access to scientific publications and the pilot for research data in Horizon 2020, followed by a preview of what to expect for Open Science in the new Horizon Europe programme.

An overview of the polices will be followed by ample time for questions in this "Ask me Anything" session.

Webinar to Support Open Science Policy Creation and Legal Issues

Webinar to Support Open Science Policy Creation and Legal Issues

  • Monday, 20 May 2019

Are you developing an open science policy in your organization? Do you need extra support to align it to other policies, or information on legal issues on research data such as licensing and copyright issues?

 OpenAIRE is offering a series of webinars targeting Research Performing Organisations (RPOs) that explore policy and legal issues around Open Science/ Open Access. The aim of the webinars is to support RPOs and RFOs in developing and/or aligning their Open Science policies by discussing the elements that a policy should include and legal issues that should be taken into consideration, and presenting the ways in which OpenAIRE can support them in their work through the NOAD network.

 The first one-hour webinar will take place on May 20th, 2019 at 13h CEST and targets stakeholders (from research organisations, funders and ministries) interested in open science policies. The webinar will present the policy templates developed by the OpenAIRE project, followed by examples of practical implementation. The webinar will also focus on how to approach licensing issues in the context of open science policies supported by best practice examples.

This webinar is aimed at: research institutions, research support staff, librarians, policy makers, ministries and funders
