LIBER Webinar: Open Science Skilling & Training Programmes Across Europe
From 2018-2020, LIBER's Working Group on Digital Skills surveyed and interviewed colleagues across Europe to identify examples of good practice in Open Science skilling and training programmes. The case reviews have been gathered and published on Zenodo and highlight the many different approaches taken to Open Science upskilling across Europe.  The case studies describe the aims of the training programmes, the audiences, skills prioritised, impact, learning and challenges.  

This webinar will provide an entry point to these case studies by showcasing a small selection from Denmark, Norway and Luxembourg. These skilling and training programmes provide a wealth of information and allow knowledge exchange on different approaches to Open Science skilling. Each speaker will briefly describe their Open Science programme and reflect on the successes and challenges they encountered along the way. There will be an opportunity for attendees to ask questions before the session closes.

During the webinar, participants will:

• Discover a range of Open Science skilling training programmes across Europe
• Gain ideas and inspiration on developing OS skilling initiatives in their own organisations
• Discover some of the challenges when setting up OS skilling initiatives
