The aim of the Second CHARM-EU Open Science Day is to share experiences among the CHARM-EU universities about changing the Open Science culture and practice of our institutions. The morning session will discuss what support can institutions give to researchers regarding Open Science activities, while the afternoon session will provide ready-to-use skills to researchers and staff members on Open Access publishing.

Event information

Date: 26 October, 2023

Time: 10.30– 14.30 (CEST) 

Format: In person and online (via Microsoft Teams)

Venue: ELTE Main Building, Aula Magna – 1-3 Egyetem tér, Budapest, Hungary 

Organizer: Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE)

Expected attendees: university/faculty leadership, partners’ representatives at Open Science support offices, Pilot 2, Pilot 3 and Pilot 4 participants, researchers, educators and PhD students of partners, TORCH PMs


Based on the institutional Open Science Survey and Gap Analysis of the partners carried out in the frame of the Alliance’s R&I-focused TORCH project, a central method to make Open Science practices mainstream is by offering skills training for all areas of Open Science and tailoring it to groups of staff and students. This is also in compliance with the CHARM-EU Open Science Policy draft recognizing the need for information courses concerning all areas of Open Science. 

Therefore, the aim of this hybrid training is to develop a training plan that can become an integrated part of university practices and to further develop the policy documents based on the feedback of participants. During the Second CHARM-EU Open Science Day, academics will share their experience in various fields connected to Open Science, especially on institutional support and open access publication. 

You can find the programme here. Registration is open until the 20th of October, 2023.
