Open Science Fair will take place from September 6 – 8, 2017 at the new premises of the National Library of Greece (NLG) at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre (SNFCC) in Athens, Greece.
Open Science Fair will critically showcase the elements required for the transition to Open Science: e-infrastructures and services, policies as guidance for good practices, research flows and new types of activities (disseminate, mine, review, assess, etc.), the roles of the respective actors and their networks.
OSFair2017 is organized as an emblematic initiative of four EU projects in the area of Open Science: OpenAIRE, OpenUP, FOSTER and OpenMinTeD. It is locally curated by the National Kapodestrian University of Athens and the “Athena” Research and Innovation Center and co-sponsored by the National Library of Greece.
COAR will be hosting a workshop to present the results of the Next Generation Repositories technological recommendations, and will also be active in a number of other sessions.
