Seminars on Research Data Management and Horizon 2020 Open Access requirements

As part of UCC’s contribution to events surrounding international Open Access Week 2014, UCC Library and UCC Research Support Services host two seminars which will look at Research Data Management and Horizon 2020 Open Access requirements.

It is an objective of the European Commission is to optimise the impact of publicly-funded research to enhance Europe’s economic performance and improve the capacity to compete through knowledge. One way to achieve that is through open access and so in Horizon 2020, all beneficiaries must make publications open access. In addition, there is a Pilot on Open Research Data which aims to improve and maximise access to and re-use of research data generated by projects for the benefit of society and the economy.

Venue: Library Learning Zone, Boole Library, UCC.

Date: Tuesday 4th November, 2014

Speaker: Martin Donnelly, Senior Institutional Support Officer, Digital Curation Centre, University of Edinburgh http://www.dcc.ac.uk/
