Content for Open Science – Open the shell and show us your pearls!

Have you, or your organization, created or repackaged/reused quality content (from briefing papers, to presentations, videos, etc) on open access, open data and open science in any language, which can be useful and used on the FOSTER training context?  We are now calling for the community contribution on the identification and mapping of relevant content which can be used for FOSTER training, to train researchers, project managers, administrators and future trainers in the benefits of Open Science and compliance with Horizon 2020 Mandate (Article 29.2 of the model Grant Agreement).


We are looking for a wide variety of content both thematically (from general open access advocacy, to discipline specific promotion/training for open science) and regarding formats (from individual texts, slides or videos to full packaged training objects or courses). With your help, we want to showcase engaging and instructive training materials and reach out to diverse disciplinary communities and countries in the European Research Area.


So if you have produced, used, or are simply aware of, quality content on open access, open data an open science, and want to give that content a wider audience and use in collaboration with the FOSTER training programme, please describe it using the form available at:

This call for content will remain open during the project lifetime, but we are aiming to have an initial relevant sample of content by early May, so we would be very grateful if you submit your content until April 30th.


FOSTER (Facilitate Open Science Training for European Research, an FP7-funded project, aims to support different stakeholders, especially young researchers, in practicing open access, open data sharing and open science.
