<img src="/sites/default/files/images/FOSTER-kick-off.jpg" alt="" />
*Twenty people aged 25 to 56 from 11 European partner institutions came together in Portugal to discuss final roles and responsibilities within the next phase of FOSTER. *

We have some good news for you: After our kick-off meeting in Guimarães we are ready to get started with the next phase of FOSTER. In the next two years we will still be facilitating Open Science training for European Research, but focusing on the practical implementation. In particular discipline-specific and advanced-level training activities will be developed to strengthen the Open Science training capacity across all over Europe and promote a change in culture.

So what’s in it for you? The following activities will be launched gradually and mainly take place in 2018:

* Outcome-oriented training events: Get tangible skills on how to select relevant repositories, how to license research data and negotiate EU data protection laws.
* New focus on humanities, social sciences and life sciences: Get high-quality resources and deal with discipline-specific needs and challenges.
* A toolkit covering all angles of Open Science: Find tailored information and resources according to your academic profile or your interests.
* New face-to-face, blended and e-learning courses on Open Access, Open Data and Open Science: Take advanced-level courses according your level of knowledge and your research background.
* An optimized website with new functionalities: Browse, contribute, learn and get certificates.
* An events calendar and a speaker’s directory: Find speakers for your training activities and stay up to date about various Open Science activities.
* An Open Science trainer bootcamp and network: Get to know other Open Science multipliers, share your experiences, support others or learn from them.
* An Open Science training handbook: Find methods, background information and exemplary training outlines for multiplying Open Science.
* New social media activities: Watch interviews with Open Science advocates on our YouTube channel and read Open Science articles on our blog.
