Training and Support Standing Committee

The Training and Support Standing committee develops training strategy and monitors and measures training operations. It identifies areas of training that are of strategic importance and priority for the OpenAIRE communities; provides train-the-trainers as a service for all interested; and collaborates with the global open science and open scholarly communication training and education communities. It also contributes to building open science skill sets and provides strategic guidance with regards to the production of learning material, modules and open educational resources, based on regional, national or local contexts.
