Webinar – The path from OpenAIRE to EOSC in Belgium

OpenAIRE has established itself as a key infrastructure for open scholarly output and Open Science services and support. In this webinar we will look at the Belgium context as OpenAIRE moves from a project to a legal entity. As Belgium was at the forefront  of the development of the OpenAIRE project, we will look at the history and the future of the project, some of its most used services and to the future of Open Science with the Flemish Open Science Board and the dedicated Open Science webpage for Belgium openaccess.be.

The webinar will take place at the 10the of February at 10.00 CET and will last about 1,5 hour.
