    Organising High Quality Research Data Management Services for Open Science

    Organisers: Peter Wittenburg (RDA/ MPCDF), Daan Broeder (EUDAT/ Meertens Institute),  Ellen Leenarts (EUDAT/ DANS),  Maggie Hellstrom (ICOS/ ULUND),  Stefano Nativi (RDA/ CNR),  Rebecca Grant (RDA/ National Library of Irekland),  Simone Sacchi (RDA/EUDAT/LIBER)
    Duration: 1.5 hours
    Open science needs high quality data management where researchers can create, use and share data according to well defined standards and practices. this is one of the pillars of Open Science. In the data management landscape we find quite a few organisations that aim at achieving this, however to get it right, a collaboration is called for where all can play a suitable role and present this in a consistent way to the researcher.
    The proposed workshop brings together representatives of standard organisation (RDA), eInfrastructures (EUDAT) and Libraries (LIBER) that together can organise the high quality data management for research.

    Towards a Policy Framework for the European Open Science Cloud: the EOSC pilot perspective

    Organisers: Prodromos Tsiavos - Athena Research and Innovation Centre, Matthew Dovey - Jisc, Simone Sacchi - LIBER
    Duration: 1.5 hours
    The workshop provides a hands on approach in relation both to the understanding of the EU open science policies and their application by related stakeholders. It  will seek to explore, propose and test different aspects of policy documents created by and for different types of stakeholders (e.g. RPOs, funders, policy makers etc) in the context of EOSC. Drawing on the work by the EOSC policy work, the workshop invites participants to bring their own policies or work on model policies to develop a simple but comprehensive policy document tailored to their needs and conforming to the EU policy and legal framework.
    It is useful to the broader Open Science community as it brings together services, stakeholders and policies and allows for a better understanding of the interaction between different constituencies.

    OpenMinTeD Platform Training: Discover the power of TDM

    Organisers: OpenMinTeD
    Duration: 1 hour
    OpenMinTed is a platform focusing on TDM for scientific works.
    Recent years witness an upsurge in the quantities of digital research data, offering new insights and opportunities for improved understanding. Text and data mining is emerging as a powerful tool for harnessing the power of structured and unstructured content and data, by analysing them at multiple levels and in several dimensions to discover hidden and new knowledge. However, text mining solutions are not easy to discover and use, nor are they easily combinable by end users. OpenMinTeD aspires to enable the creation of an infrastructure that fosters and facilitates the use of text mining technologies in the scientific publications world, builds on existing text mining tools and platforms, and renders them discoverable and interoperable through appropriate registries and a standards-based interoperability layer, respectively. It supports training of text mining users and developers alike and demonstrates the merits of the approach through several use cases identified by scholars and experts from different scientific areas, ranging from generic scholarly communication to literature related to life sciences, food and agriculture, and social sciences and humanities. Through its infrastructural activities, OpenMinTeD’s vision is to make operational a virtuous cycle in which a) primary content is accessed through standardised interfaces and access rules b) by well-documented and easily discoverable text mining services that process, analyse, and annotate text c) to identify patterns and extract new meaningful actionable knowledge, which will be used d) for structuring, indexing, and searching content and, in tandem, e) acting as new knowledge useful to draw new relations between content items and firing a new mining cycle.
