*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 

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 .
