FREYA participation in ICT 2018 exhibition

Author: Ketil Koop-Jakobsen (PANGAEA)

From December 4-6th 2018, FREYA was represented at the ICT 2018 exhibition in Vienna in the European Commission Village. FREYA participated in a joint booth with other EC-funded projects working on advancing Open Science; the EOSC-hub, OpenAIRE and RDA Europe. This gave us the opportunity to present the vision of FREYA in a larger perspective, and how our work fulfills an important niche in Open Science. Many people stopped by the booth for a chat about recent developments and perspectives on Open Science in Europe, and many questions revolved around how to move Open Science forward. This led to interesting conversations about the work of FREYA, and the importance of PID-assignment and development of a PID graph, and the opportunities this generates for the advancement of Open Science.
