SiN participation in Eurodoc’s Focus Session on the ORE Project and KRECon 2022

As representative of SiN, Friederike Schäfer traveled in early November to Prague to participate in a focus session hosted by Eurodoc as a pre-conference event on the Open Research Europe (ORE) Project. ORE is an Open Access publishing platform for beneficiaries from Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe. It provides rapid and transparent publication of scientific output from all study areas. All articles are published under a CC-BY license at no costs. Therefore, ORE is a valuable contribution towards Open Science in Europe. During the focus session, Eurodoc gathered current challenges and opportunities regarding the ORE project for early career researchers. The conclusions from the session are summarized in a written document and Eurodoc as an expert partner in the ORE project will ensure that the voice of early career researchers will be heard.

The topic of this year’s Knowledge, Research, and Education conference (KRECon 2022) was Doctoral Schools: Enhancing Research Careers and it took place in the National Library of Technology on November 10-11. Main themes discussed during the conference were the effectiveness of doctoral schools, the variety of research careers within and beyond academia, and good practices for doctoral training. The conference was closed with a panel discussion on the future of doctoral training, where Nicola Dengo, a general board member of Eurodoc, participated as the voice of early career researchers in Europe.
