Aula Magna, Rettorato, Università di Torino
Via Po, 17 Torino

The future of scholarly communication in Europe

How shall we communicate and evaluate science in the next few years? Do we still need journals? What about PlanS? And what about FAIR data and the EOSC, European Open Science Cloud? And the Social Sciences and Humanities?

The national OpenAIRE workshop aims to present different perspectives on the future of scholarly communication in Europe: new infrastructures and new services towards a more open and sustainable ecosystem.

To attend, please register (free but required).
