The final Agenda of the second Sci-GaIA thematic Workshop has been released. The workshop will take place on March 15, 2016 in Dakar, Senegal at the Hotel Novotel and it is an event jointly organised with two other projects: TANDEM and MAGIC. The workshop will be organised under the aegis of the European Commission (EC, DG CONNECT) and in co-location with the WACREN Conference 2016 that will take place on March 17-18.
This second Sci-GaIA workshop will focus on “Promoting Open Science in Africa“. This Workshop presents the opportunity to hear the opinions of leading African Scientists and to see recent advances in Open Science services that have been developed for African Scientific Communities of Practice. The Workshop also gives the opportunity to see how Science Gateways, e-Infrastructures, Open Access Data Repositories and Research Registries can be used to support Open Science, as well as understanding the key roles and contributions that organisations such as National Research and Education Networks, DataCite, ORCID and THOR and international cooperation projects including Sci-GaIA, TANDEM and MAGIC are making to Open Science.
This Sci-GaIA thematic workshop on Open Science is organised by WACREN with the support of all Sci-GaIA project partners.
