|On the 21st of November, a round table discussion organized by Open Access Belgium, will bring together research administration and libraries to have an in-depth discussion about the financial implications of transformative agreements and the monitoring of cost for Open Access publishing.
More specifically, the event will involve APC monitoring by universities, Electron on the cost of Open Access, ESAC and Bicfb on the mechanisms of the current transformative agreements in place and a group discussion on Open Access publishing costs and transformative agreements. The half day event will also provide the opportunity to exchange experiences on the current transformative agreements and attitude towards open access agreements.
|This is an on invitation-only event. A report of the event will be publish later on.|

Following the round table discussion, you can join the “Open Science in Belgium: EOSC Initiatives” workshop organised by BELSPO, EWI and CFWB, which will take place on the same day at the Palace of the Academies from 13.30 till 17 pm.
This workshop is independently organized from ‘Open Access publication costs and transformative agreement strategies: a round table discussion’. You can find the programme here.

A two-day workshop titled ‘Research policy monitoring in the era of Open Science and Big Data – The what (indicators) and the how (infrastructures)’, co-organised by OpenAIRE and Data4Impact, with support of Science Europe, will explore mechanisms for research policy monitoring and indicators, and how to link these to infrastructure and services. The first day will focus on open science indicators as these emerge from national and EU initiatives, while the second will be a forward thinking exploration for more advanced aspects of indicators for innovation and societal impact.WHEN – May 27-28th, 2019
WHERE – Het Pand, Ghent, Belgium
WHAT – A two day workshop exploring mechanisms for research policy monitoring and indicators: discussing the what ‘indicators’ and the how: infrastructure. This workshop is in collaboration with Data4Impact, with support of Science Europe.

Over the past 20 years digital open scholarly communications have slowly changed the way we study, research, publish and share knowledge in developed and developing regions, with a trend toward open access, open science, en data. Openness brings benefits but also challenges for sustainable and participatory knowledge infrastructures.

For the third year, the libraries network of the University of Liege (ULg Library) organizes an “Open Access Erasmus Staff Week” to expose, question and reflect on the new roles and opportunities which emerged from the Open Access & Open Science movement for the academic libraries.
Based both on ULg Library’s expertize and on each participant’s experience in Open Access, the main OA components will be addressed : mandates, author rights, Open Science, libraries roles, etc. Some sessions will be collaborative and, for others, participants will be invited to expose their own open access experiences.
When? : 8 to 12 may 2017, english will be the working language.
The application deadline is March 10th, 2017.

The topic of open access has moved well beyond opening up publications and research data. Additional to those important ways of sharing lies a more integrated approach, generally known as open science. The striving for transparency, public availability and reuseability has made some enthusiastic advocates for Open Science. But what are the possibilities and challenges? And how to apply Open Science in your research workflow?
