On June 11, 2015, the Austrian Research Promotion Agency organised a one-day training session for multipliers in Vienna. It was attended by 33 participants from Austrian universities and large research organisations who are responsible for counselling on open access and open data, either at research support offices or at libraries. Therefore, an optimal transmission of knowledge within the respective institutions is ensured.
The training programme started with an introduction on the legal requirements regarding Open Access and Open Data in Horizon 2020. Two workshops focussed on the practical aspects on implementing these requirements in H2020 projects. For instance, participants got an introduction to checking the Open Access compatibility of journals and drafting data management plans. Furthermore, a number of national and international projects and initiatives in the field of Open Access were presented.
