Research Libraries, Researchers & the EOSC: Central/Eastern European Landscape
A highly participative workshop format, with only 3 short presentations and generous time for a creative discussions session. Make your participation remarkable!
Research libraries have been championing Open Access and Open Science both within and beyond our institutions. We have demonstrated strong leadership in Open Science as policy-makers on the one hand and sound management when implementing plans to realise that policy on the other. Research libraries have been the key holders of data for a long time and play a key role in connecting end-users/researchers to Open Science and the EOSC. Also research libraries develop and maintain services that users rely upon and that need to be integrated into the EOSC. Libraries can, therefore, help develop the requirements for the inclusion of services and data into the EOSC. The strong experience in advocating for Open Science for many years can help to advocate for the EOSC in the research community.
Target audience: researchers, research library staff
HOW TO PARTICIPATE?
Are you interested to learn more about the EOSC and to contribute with your insights as a key stakeholder group? Please register your interest below, including a short motivation for your participation. In order to ensure the interactivity and the regional representation of each workshop we will evaluate all registrations before they are finalised and we will select 30 participants from all applications. We are looking for your participation and we will be in touch with you promptly with more information.
WHY TO PARTICIPATE?
Make your voice heard and help build EOSC. The European Open Science Cloud is a world-leading initiative. Contributing to its first design represents a lifetime opportunity. It requires fresh, new ideas and bold ambitions. Community work is the most suitable approach to deliver a service which suits the interest of many.
We count on your enthusiasm, creativity and energy. We are looking for your participation!
WHAT TO EXPECT AND WHAT NOT TO?
Expect to be stimulated and to engage in a deep, highly interactive discussion. You are expected to contribute with ideas, including out of box perspectives, visions, unique practices, less traveled routes that could help build EOSC.
Don’t expect a workshop-like-a-conference. Don’t expect long presentations with “two immediate questions” at the end. Don’t expect a learing programme. Expect an interactive one. Become a part of it! Register now!
REGISTER WITH RESPONSIBILITY!
Once you registered, please book the day and the time slot in your calendar. Digital events have – statistically – a lower turn up rate. Those that register and don’t turn up will block a valuable participation of another colleague. Thank you for understanding!
