NORF Open Research in Ireland webinar: Infrastructures for Open Research, 30 March 2021

Date: Tuesday 30 March 2021, 2:00pm-4:00pm IST
Location: Zoom Webinar
Organisers: NORF Working Group on Infrastructures

As part of a webinar series on Open Research in Ireland, the National Open Research Forum (NORF) is presenting a webinar focused on Infrastructures to support Open Research.

NORF has been developing a National Open Research Landscape Report to summarise progress and challenges in each of the strategic areas of Ireland’s National Framework on the Transition to an Open Research Environment. Against this background, speakers will discuss how Open Research is supported through a range of infrastructures including the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), disciplinary infrastructures such as DARIAH for arts and humanities research, and core scholarly infrastructures such as persistent identifiers.

Speakers will include the co-chairs of NORF’s Infrastructures Working Group (Eoghan O’Carragain, UCC & Caleb Derven, UL), Sarah Jones from GÉANT, Sally Chambers from the Ghent Centre for Digital Humanities, and Geoffrey Bilder from Crossref.

This webinar is targeted at the national research community in Ireland: research support staff, librarians, researchers, and funder representatives.
