On 2 December 2022, the 6th Pomeranian Open Science Conference: Policies and Infrastructures for Open Science will take place. This year’s edition of this nationwide scientific conference is designed to summarise the activities to date in developing policies and tools to support the opening up of scientific research results, including research data, and to discuss the directions for the development of such services.
The conference will also provide an opportunity to summarise the first year of activities of the Polish working group DSCC-IN PL, coordinated by the Gdansk University of Technology in cooperation with GO-FAIR.
In order to introduce Conference Participants to this year’s topic, a workshop on the European Open Science Cloud/EOSC organised by the National Science Centre is scheduled for 1 December 2022, during which the idea of a common European space for research data will be presented, a meeting of the Polish EOSC-PL Working Group, which includes representatives of universities and institutes of the Polish Academy of Sciences, members of the EOSC Association, and a meeting of the DSCC-PL Working Group – the first national initiative addressed to data stewards and all those who deal with research data management in their work. The conference is also preceded by a two-day seminar, co-organised by the PG Library and Elsevier, which will address issues such as rankings, scientific excellence and open science.
