The PASTEUR4OA project is pleased to invite you to Amsterdam on 17-18 May 2016 for their final conference: Green Light for Open Access: Aligning Europe’s OA Policies.
The conference comes at a time of high interest in open access, and as its many benefits are now being widely recognised. These include more equal access to information, increased visibility for authors and an accelerated pace of research and discovery, leading to broad societal and economic advantages.
Within this context, the PASTEUR4OA project has been working to develop and reinforce OA strategies across Europe, to engage policy makers and to establish a network (Knowledge Net) aimed at promoting OA alignment across multiple countries.
The conference will provide the perfect venue to discuss the overall OA landscape and the achievements of the project, along with experts, funders, research institutions and policy makers from across Europe.
Through a programme of keynote speeches, expert talks and panel discussions, participants will gain an overview of current and upcoming developments in the OA sphere. Discussions held during the conference will be especially timely as they coincide with the Dutch Presidency of the European Union. Open Access has been named as a priority during the Dutch Presidency and this conference is a event officially associated with the Dutch Presidency.
Further details about the programme, speakers and registration will be available in early January.
