PIDs, Metadata, Interoperability: Open Science and Research Data Management Policies in Slovenia

The first of the FAIR National Roadshow series organised by the FAIR-IMPACT project is visiting Slovenia on the 28th of September 2023!

The event will be virtually hosted by the University of Maribor and the Slovenian Open Science Community.

The event will debate around the status of OS practices in the country starting from an overview of the FAIR policy regulations in Slovenia, leveraging on current initiatives and assessing challenges still to be addressed by the Slovenian research community.

Presentations from the FAIR-IMPACT partners will showcase existing recommendations, good practices, and assessment tools that can help the Research community members start (or continue) their journey to becoming more FAIR-enabling and actively contribute to the European Open Science Cloud.
