Workshop abstract

Session 1 - researchers

Would you like to learn more about practicing open science and open research in the life sciences, social sciences and humanities? Join our training workshop with a perspective on the practices of disciplinary domains. The workshop will help you to understand and adopt open science practices, get to know common standards, tools, infrastructures and support you may use in your specific context.

SESSION 2 - policy makers and staff working in funding bodies

Looking for guidance on developing successful Open Access, Open Research Data and Open Science policies? Already have such policies in place and would like to support and monitor their implementation more efficiently? Join us for this workshop to discuss the practical implementation of the Open Access and Open Data requirements. The workshop will include an overview of OpenAIRE’s tools for monitoring compliance and what additional assistance can be provided to researchers in order to improve the uptake of policies.
