RECODE (http://recodeproject.eu) is organizing its Final Project Conference on 15 and 16 January 2015 in Athens. The conference will contribute to the ongoing dialogue on open science and open access to research data by providing a forum for discussion that brings together an excellent line-up of international experts and key stakeholders. The Conference is designed around the following key themes:
- Policies for open access to research data
- Good practices in enabling re-use of research data
- Open research data and research cultures
- PSI as research data and vice versa
- Grand challenges in opening access to research data
The conference will showcase the results from RECODE and officially launch the RECODE Policy Recommendations. The key impact of RECODE will be to reduce fragmentation in the open access ecosystem by providing practical and evidence-based advice to the organisations involved in facilitating open access to research data. This will be achieved through the production of overarching recommendations as well as specifically targeted at the following stakeholder groups:
- Research institutions
- Data managers
The RECODE final conference provides an opportunity for learning as well as taking part in a rich dialogue regarding open access to research data within the current European research landscape.
The conference is organized by the National Documentation Centre and will take place at the National Hellenic Research Foundation in the heart of Athens.
