FREYA, EOSC-hub, OpenAIRE and RDA Europe will be at ICT 2018 this week!

From 4 to 6 December at the ICT 2018 exhibition in Vienna, EOSC-hub, OpenAIRE, RDA Europe and FREYA projects are opening a joint booth in the European Commission Village. It is designed to be a focal point of discussions about sharing and opening science, transforming policy-making and society via informed decision-making.

Topics such as sharing of resources, economies of scale on computing power, sharing of data and enhanced accessibility and reusability of research results will be open for discussion.

The four projects aim to cater to visitors with diverse backgrounds, with a simple and fun approach. A series of demos will be showcased, along with cases from projects that benefited from Open Science. OpenAIRE will present its services on Open Science, the open innovation challenges and citizen science activities. FREYA will show the value of “persistent identifiers” that allow research resources to be reliably found and reused, as well as linked together in networks—the “PID Graph”. RDA Europe will showcase its solutions, the RDA Recommendations & Outputs focused on enabling open data sharing and EOSC-hub will present visitors the services and resources that can support their daily work.

Moreover, the visitors will be able to understand how to benefit from the above initiatives at their national level (via NGIs, the National Open Access Desks - NOADs, RDA national nodes) or other through channels like FREYA’s PID Forum.

In this context, visitors will be encouraged to indicate in an interactive way their Open Science challenges and they will learn more about best practices, tools and services available to make science more open, efficient and attractive to non-scientists. Their contribution will be part of a wishlist to be taken forward by the four initiatives.

If this resonates with you, we are looking forward to meeting you there!
