Webinar: DMPonline - new directions

As part of Open Access week, the DCC will be giving a webinar on recent developments in DMPonline. To join please register via GoToMeeting.

In Spring we launched the new DMPRoadmap platform with our colleagues at the California Digital Library. This was a major upgrade to the codebase and incorporated a redesign of the front end and underlying data model. Performance improvements and a number of new features were also added. We have continued to add more features over Summer and Autumn, particularly for administrative users and will demo these. The webinar will also cover the new subscription model and some of the most Frequently Asked Questions emerging about the contract and service delivery.

Fostering open science

Training for EC project officers on open access and open data in Horizon 2020

We ran four half-day workshops at the end of June as part of the FOSTER project. FOSTER aims to facilitate open science by training researchers about open access and open data. The courses were for project officers at the European Commission. They’re the liaison point between researchers and the EC, so our training looked specifically at the requirements under Horizon 2020. It was a really useful learning experience for me too – I came away knowing much more about open access and the support available via OpenAIRE. Below is a summary of the key points and references I took away.
