The first workshop is for research institutions, and the second is for research funders. PASTEUR4OA will welcome policymakers from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, The Netherlands and the UK to the Workshops. The workshops are by invitation only.
The workshops aim to stimulate creation of open access (OA) policies that are aligned with the OA policy of the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 research funding programme.
PASTEUR4OA will provide tools and materials to help delegates formulate policies of their own. Speakers from institutions that have OA policies will provide accounts of their own policy development and implementation processes, and discussion sessions will provide opportunities for sharing experiences and comparing progress.
The North-West Europe workshops are part of a series of regional meetings organized by PASTEUR4OA to take place in Europe between September 2015 and April 2016.
