This webinar is organised by Scholars at Risk Europe as part of MSCA4Ukraine, an EU-funded fellowship programme for displaced researchers from Ukraine. EUA is part of the porject consortium.
The webinar, which will take place on 25 October at 11.00 CEST, will address open science principles and practices in the EU and how open science can contribute to the strengthening of the Ukrainian higher education and research sector. Open science is defined by the EU’s Research Executive Agency as “an approach to research based on open cooperative work – that emphasizes the sharing of knowledge, results and tools as early and widely as possible.” It has the potential to increase the quality and efficiency of research and accelerate the advancement of knowledge and innovation by sharing results, making them more reusable and improving their reproducibility. This webinar offers an opportunity for researchers from Ukraine to learn more about open science practices, how to publish on the open access publishing platform developed by the European Commission and how open science can be used to contribute to the reconstruction of Ukraine’s higher education sector.
The webinar will cover:
(a) Overview of open science in the EU- Dr Victoria Tsoukala, Policy Officer-Open Science, European Commission.
(b) Guide to the Open Research Europe platform-Dr Victoria Tsoukala, Policy Officer-Open Science, European Commission.
(c) Contribution of open science to the rebuilding of Ukraine’s higher education and research sector-Prof. Dr. Sören Auer, Director of the TIB – Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology, Head of the Data Science and Digital Libraries Research Group at Leibniz University Hannover; Margret Plank, Head of the Lab for Non-Textual Information at the TIB; Nataliya Butych, Regional Coordinator Eastern Europe, International Office of Leibniz University Hannover.
