The purpose of the conference is to bring together different stakeholders (funders, policy makers, publishers, content providers, creators, Research Infrastructures/communities, researchers, institutions, libraries, innovators) in order to discuss the implementation of targeted aspects of Open Science and the elements required for this transition.

On September 7 (Parallel session 5, 16:00), the 1.5 hour workshop entitled 'Organising High Quality Research Data Management Services for Open Science' will take place, bringing together representatives of standard organisation (RDA), eInfrastructures (EUDAT) and Libraries (LIBER) that together can organise the high quality data management for research.

LIBER is highly involved in EUDAT on policy and planning for data access, contributes to the research on environments and requirements by libraries, as well as to the communications' activities, and closely collaborates with RDA Europe.

SPARC Europe and LIBER joint workshop deals with key challenge areas pertaining to policy implementation
- 17 Aug 2017

In connection with the annual LIBER conference, SPARC Europe and LIBER recently joined forces to run a workshop titled Bridging the Gap between Policy and Practice: How do we make Open the Default? The event was held last month in Patras.

Four key challenge areas pertaining to policy implementation were the focus of the workshop. SPARC Europe managed the session on How institutions can engage more with researchers to enable more Open Access and Open Data sharing.

More than 20 participants from across Europe contributed to a lively discussion of ideas and experiences on the topic. Among the various approaches mentioned, the discussion included: involving researchers in publisher negotiations, better informing them of costs, creating competitions to acquire new use case ideas and to advocate for more open data, using researchers as ambassadors or champions, informing and engaging at various creative events and collaborating with them to simplify their work processes.

First International Digital Preservation Day to be held on November 30, 2017
- 07 Aug 2017

The first International Digital Preservation Day will be held on November 30, 2017 and will draw together individuals and institutions from across the world to celebrate the collections preserved, the access maintained and the understanding fostered by preserving digital materials.

Organised by the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) and supported by the Open Preservation Foundation, the ICPSR and other digital preservation networks, International Digital Preservation Day is open to participation across all sectors, from anyone interested in securing digital legacy.

International Digital Preservation Day aims to provide a window into the daily activities of those involved with or contemplating digital preservation. Data creators, curators and consumers from around the world will be invited to showcase their own 'Digital Preservation Day' through blog posts on the DPC website, tweets and instagrams using the hashtag #IDPD17. The DPC's own contribution will be in the publication of new resources aimed to support public and institutional advocacy for digital preservation activities.

This activity is just one of the ways the Coalition raises awareness of the strategic, cultural and technological issues which make up the digital preservation challenge. The DPC also supports members through other advocacy activities, workforce development, capacity-building and partnership; helping members to deliver resilient long-term access to digital content and services, and derive enduring value from their digital collections.

A detailed programme and more information about International Digital Preservation Day will be issued over the coming months.
