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.
The Belgian national research and education network facilitates open science in Belgium and in Europe.
Last month, Belnet, the Belgian research and education network, was appointed as the mandated organisation of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) Association for Belgium. The aim of EOSC is to create a new European web of data as a means of stimulating interdisciplinary research and thereby boosting science and the economy.
This webinar will present the catalogue to the evolving RDM support community in Belgium and to hear directly from its potential users. It will introduce the EOSC-Pillar project and contextualise the Training and support catalogue within the wider EOSC ecosystem. Throughout the session, participation is encouraged and feedback on different aspects of the catalogue is welcomed. Join us to move the catalogue forward!
