*Content for Open Science ? Open the shell and show us your pearls!*

Following a very fruitful response to our Call for Training events (we are now evaluating 45 proposals from 19 countries, and we will notify selected applicants before April 30^th ), FOSTER is calling for training content.

Have you, or your organization, created or repackaged/reused quality content (from briefing papers, to presentations, videos, etc) on open access, open data and open science in any language, which can be useful and used in the FOSTER training context? We are now calling for the community?s contributions to the identification and mapping of relevant content which can be used for FOSTER training, to equip researchers, project managers, administrators and future trainers with knowledge of the benefits of Open Science and compliance with the Horizon 2020 Mandate (Article 29.2 of the model Grant Agreement).

With your help, we want to showcase engaging and instructive training materials and reach out to diverse disciplinary communities and countries in the European Research Area.

We are looking for content that may vary widely both in terms of theme (from general open access advocacy, to discipline specific promotion/training for open science) and format (from individual texts, slides or videos to full packaged training objects or courses).

So, if you have produced, used, or are simply aware of, quality content on open access, open data and open science, and want to give that content a wider audience in collaboration with the FOSTER training programme, please describe it using the form available at: 

This call for content will remain open during the project?s lifetime, but we are aiming to have an initial relevant sample of content by early May, so we would be very grateful if you could submit your content by April 30^th .
