[InetBib] OpenAIRE Conference - 21/22 November 2012 - Göttingen

*** Apologies for cross-posting ***

The OpenAIRE consortium has the pleasure to announce its second conference:

*OpenAIRE Conference "Enlightenment in the Knowledge Society"*

Date: 21-22 November 2012

Location: Göttingen State and University Library, Göttingen, Germany

Registration is free, and open at:


The conference will present the results of the OpenAIRE project which 
supports the European Commission's FP7 Open Access Pilot.^It will 
feature a picture of the open access & supporting infrastructure 
landscape in Europe and offer views ranging from researcher's views on 
scientific information, to the role of data infrastructures, research 
institutions and funders. This will offer a fitting context to Horizon 
2020, where open access will be a general principle for all European 
researchprogrammes. The programme will also give insight into the 
OpenAIREplus project, which will link publications to research data, 
enabling seamless access to scientific knowledge.

The meeting is organized by OpenAIRE and OpenAIREplus, with the support 
of the Directorate Generals for Communications Networks, Content and 
Technology(CONNECT) and Research and Innovation (RTD). Invitees are 
decision makers and other stakeholders in research from all EU Member 
States and further Associated countries. The event is co-hosted by 
Göttingen University, founded in 1734 during the Enlightenment. 
Göttingen's spirit of learning has been transferred to the 21^st century 
by the promotion of open access successfully both in Europe and 
internationally. The Conference will send an appropriate signal to the 
European community at a time when the Commission's Communication & 
Recommendation on Scientific Information are being discussed in European 
member states.

The conference will start on 21 November noon and ends on 22 November at 
the same time. The first day of the conference will be rounded off with 
a conference dinner. The programme will be available online soon.

The OpenAIRE community would be delighted to welcome you in Göttingen.
