With the close links between digital tools and research activities, supporting open science is slowly but surely becoming part of the scope of the activities of national research and education networks (NRENs).

This year, EUDAT returns once more to TNC, this time being held in Tirana, Albania. Representatives of NRENs and the research and education community are invited to meet our EUDAT representatives at the EUDAT booth to understand how FAIR-enabling research data management services can add value to the current work of research and academic communities.

Session: NRENs in Open Science

Supplementing our fixed presence at the exhibition, EUDAT in collaboration with GÉANT and RDA are organising a Side Meeting to discuss “Future directions for NRENs in Open Science” on Tuesday, 6 June 2023, 08:30 - 10:30 CEST | Underground B. More information to come shortly. This meeting addresses NREN strategies, activities and benefits of Open Science work. Lightning talks will cover GÉANT survey results and NREN case studies to identify future directions (max 40 mins). The focus will be on discussion to explore lessons and potential partnership opportunities between NRENs, EUDAT and RDA.
