SPARC Europe in two new EU projects – FOSTER and PASTEUR4OA

SPARC Europe is pleased to announce that it is a partner on two successful project bids to the European Commission. Both projects will start in early 2014. The first project, FOSTER (Foster Open Science Training for European Research) will deliver training programmes for researchers and other stakeholder groups, as well as training trainers to spread the effort more widely.

The second project, PASTEUR4OA (Open Access Policy Alignment Strategies for European Union Research) will address policymakers and will try to encourage OA policy alignment across Europe to simplify compliance for researchers and to adhere to the spirit of the European Research Area’s harmonisation agenda.

Please check the websites of the two projects as they begin in 2014 to see the progress being made.
