CERIC will take part in the 4th European User Office Meeting (EUOM) at ELI Beamlines, in the Czech Republic, on 29-30 April 2020 (date to be updated, once available). The event is organized by the Extreme-Light Infrastructure (ELI) with the support of ERF-AISBL, the Association of European-Level Research Infrastructures Facilities.

The workshop continues a series of successful meetings dedicated to the User Office Community and provides unique opportunity for the European User Office representatives for exchanging information and experiences on present and upcoming common challenges relevant to user operation at the RI facilities. 

This year’s programme will include participatory sessions where CERIC will present its findings on open access procedures and policies, peer review processes and publication policies, resulting from the work developed in the frame of the ACCELERATE project, and summarised in the documents below:

  • Publication Policy report – Benchmarking of publication policies adopted by different European RIs, including a prospective on the future of publications in the open data era.

Also the PaNOSC project, where CERIC is involved towards the construction of the EOSC for the photon and neutron community, acting as a player in steering the movement towards the philosophy and practice of Open Data, will be presented.

In particular, Rudolf Dimper from ESRF, will give an overview of data and publication policies based on the surveys conducted in the frame of the project.

This year’s programme will include participatory sessions on access modes and peer-review, sample management challenges, user office quality and performance management, open access and open data, and more.
