EOSC-Pillar Recommendations for Legal and Policy Harmonisation of Open and FAIR Science in the EU

  • By Federico Drago

EOSC-Pillar produced a set of recommendations reflecting a selection of the most relevant identified shortcomings of the current regulations on FAIR and Open Science across EU member states, which have been operated based on three criteria:

  • The relevance of the legal obstacles at comparative level (e.g., profound regulatory fragmentation and divergences across the five EOSC-Pillar Member States);
  • The relevance of the legal obstacles to the guidelines issued for the benefit of individual stakeholders (e.g., specific needs to facilitate good practises);
  • The urgency of intervention upon provisions, whose modernisation has been deemed to be long overdue.

Multilingual Vocabularies for the Social Sciences and Humanities - training session

  • By Tiziana Lombardo

This training webinar will be a synergy of TRIPLE and SSHOC projects, and it will be devoted especially to the creation, use and management of controlled vocabularies in the SSH. Controlled vocabularies are organized arrangements of words and phrases used to annotate, index and retrieve content through browsing or searching. Multilingualism is an essential feature for the SSH, this is why multilingual SSH vocabularies are greatly needed. The training event will provide answers to the following questions, among others:

  • What are SSH Vocabularies and why are they so important?
  • How to create a multilingual SSH Vocabulary (The TRIPLE case)?
  • The large variety of vocabularies and management needs in the SSH: How to build an interoperable infrastructure for vocabularies (The SSHOC case)?
