Join this virtual LIBSENSE workshop and take part in discussions about strategies for open access and open science policy and infrastructure development in Africa.

The workshop brings together the African community of open access repository managers; open science and open access advocates, and others involved in supporting and providing open access services. It is co-organized by WACREN, UbuntuNet Alliance, ASREN, EIFL, COAR, AfricaConnect 3, OpenAIRE and GÉANT. The three main topics to be covered are:

  • Open access and open science policies and repositories: what works and what doesn’t;
  • Repository infrastructure and services: how to build cohesiveness across layers of local, national and regional services; and
  • Communities of practice: how to strengthen open science communities in Africa.
