Managing Open Science

12 January 2016
EURAC, Bolzano

Overview

This course will introduce researchers and research managers to the concept of Open Science (Open Access to publications and Open Data) and its implications for their work. Practical steps that can be taken to help with the preparation of proposals (especially in Horizon 2020), as well as for the management of Open Data in research projects will be described. An exercise on writing a Data Management Plan (DMP) will give insights into what to include and offer feedback on proposed approaches. Pointers will be given to useful tools and resources, as well as case studies and other real-world examples.
