SPARC Europe Workshop: Open Access policy and training in Europe at the LIBER Annual Conference 2015
This workshop will bring you up to date on two important EU-funded projects currently underway. One is FOSTER (Foster Open Science Training for European Research), a project focused on enabling and providing training courses on all aspects of Open Science. We will report on the courses that have taken place, those still to come and on the online training materials the project is creating. The other project is PASTEUR4OA (OA Policy Alignment Strategies for European Union Research), which is focused on OA policy. We will report on the policy analysis work the project has carried out, including the criteria that make a policy most effective. We will also introduce the new, revamped ROARMAP policy registry and talk about project events that are being planned for policymakers.
