Celebrate Open Access Week 2016 with OpenAIRE webinars

The 9th edition of the International Open Access Week, the global community-driven week of action to open up access to research, will be held from 24th to 30th October 2016. During this week, events, seminars, webinars and many other activities will take place both online and offline.


After the 2014’s theme "Generation Open" and the 2015’s theme "Open for Collaboration", this year’s theme "Open in Action" is effectively providing an incentive to broaden the scope and involve all stakeholders, researchers as well as the general public.

In this occasion, OpenAIRE has scheduled a full week of webinars (at 12.00 CEST) expected to shed some light on the implementation of Open Science as well as the activities OpenAIRE is involved in:
