| Sara Di Giorgio | news

This international event aims to bring together and empower open science communities and services; identify common practices related to open science; see what are the best synergies to deliver and operate services that work for many; and bring experiences from all around the world and learn from each other.

Skills4EOSC organised:

on September 25th, Museo Reina Sofia, Small Auditorium, 14:15-16:15 Skills4EOSC workshop ‘Digital Skills for FAIR and Responsible Open Science: Co-creating the Content, Structure and Pathway’’ at the 4th Open Science Fair conference, and international event for all topics related to Open Science, which will be held from 25th to 27th September 2023, in Madrid (Spain).
This workshop proposal from the Skills4EOSC and PATTERN projects together with the EOSC Association’s Data Stewardship Curricula and Career Paths Task Force aims to promote new approaches to address competence gaps in Open Science (OS) and Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), clarify the role profiles and career paths of data professionals, and help design high-quality FAIR learning resources for learners and educators. 
The session has been accepted under the events of the European Year of Skills. Please find the related page here.

on September 26th, Museo Reina Sofia, Auditorium 200, 15:45 Lightning talk by Loek Brinkman, DANS: Boosting community engagement: the open science community incubator program 
Skills4EOSC is collaborating with INOSC to provide a 12-week online onboarding program for new OSCs: the OSC Incubator Program. Over the course of six modules, participants work towards launching a ‘Minimum Viable OSC’ and prepare to foster and maintain their community with an ‘OSC Master Plan’, which consists of plans for community identity, community engagement, communication, stakeholder engagement, monitoring and sustainability. The program targets researchers and research supporters – both are well-suited to start a local OSC.
In this lightning talk, we introduce the OSC Incubator Program and invite colleagues around the globe to partake in the program and set up their own OSC. The OSC Incubator program is free of charge and is offered twice per year and there is room for up to 10 participants per cohort.
