Workshop: “Sharing Research Data and OA to publications in H2020”, Nov 18, Ghent, Belgium

As a major funder, through Horizon2020, the EU has been at the forefront of implementing Open Access policies. Following the Open Access pilot in FP7, Horizon2020 brings a strong mandate for Open Access to publications as well as an Open Data Pilot for certain areas of research. The pilot encourages researchers to deposit research data in data repositories to make them accessible and usable to others.
Many questions arise from this policy: how to implement the requirements, where to publish, and what about confidentiality and privacy issues? Issues of priority and planning; what should be taken care of at proposal state, during the project and after the project ends?
The workshop aims to provide answers to these questions. And also provide an arena to exchange experiences, define problems and possible solutions. The target audience is NCP’s, research administrators and project coordinators. Tools will be presented to facilitate data management and experiences will be exchanged to provide hands-on solutions.
