I think this is a brilliant idea. And the topics are well planned. I only miss something for policy makers - this is the most urgent thig - to persuade policy makers. Or will it be covered on March 18th?
I would suggest not to make any discussions in July, as most people are already on vacation. I see you have ommited August, so I suggest to do the same with July, especially end of July.
When this list will be already approved we all need to advertise it widely - and not only in library community - in wider research community and IT coomunity also.

Subject: [EIFLoa] Themed EIFL-OA weeks
We would like to follow the example of EIFL-FOSS programme (Simon Ball) and try to organise 'themed weeks' to get more community and sharing activities happening across the EIFL OA network. During these "themed weeks" we plan to share information and provide upskilling via online workshops and discussion.
All you will need to attend the online workshops is an internet-connected computer with sound (and maybe headphones if you are in a busy room). To check if your computer will successfully access the session you can go to www.instantpresenter.com/systemtest. The session should run in Firefox, Internet Explorer and Chrome.
We can also use eifloa mailing list for discussions.
We can cover the following topics according to this tentative schedule:
March 18: Open access advocacy campaigns (national and institutional);
April (the week of April 18-22): capacity building for repository managers;
May (the week of May 23-27): EPrints themed week (joint event with EIFL-FOSS);
June (the week of June 13-17): case studies of successful repositories;
July (the week of 25-29): DSpace and Fedora themed week (joint event with EIFL-FOSS);
September (the week of 19-23): planning for International Open Access Week;
October (the week of 24-28): Open Journal System/PKP themed week (joint event with EIFL-FOSS);
November (the week of 14-18): case studies of successful open access journals;
December (the week of 5-9): case studies: open access book publishing.
What do you think about these topics and schedule? Of course we would like to adjust them to your needs.
PLEASE SUGGEST topics you would be interested in having for online workshops/discussions and also suggest which themes you may be able to make a short contribution for.
With best wishes,
EIFL Open Access programme manager
