How to get there


Open Science A to Z aims to give an overview about what is Open Science and why it matters for a more transparent and effective research.

We shall see practical tools in order to open the whole research workflow, focusing on Open Access, Open research Data, and Citizen Science.

Our framework will be the European perspective within Horizon 2020 and the EOSC, European Open Science Cloud.

There will be plenty of time for discussion and interaction.

Trainer: Elena Giglia, head of the Open Access office at the University of Turin
