A very fruitful meeting was organized and held between the OSCAR team and the coordinator of the BE-OPEN project, Mrs. Boile. The meeting took place in Athens, Greece, in the frame of the OSCAR 6M progress meeting. The two projects, both dealing with the issue of Open Science, have agreed to frequently exchange, be in touch, support each other and collaborate where possible; so as to mutually benefit and avoid duplications of effort.
The 6-Months’ progress meeting of the OSCAR project took place on the 25th of June 2019, in Athens – Greece, at the Philippos Hotel. Representatives of all OSCAR consortium members attended the meeting and discussed upon the main progress made during the initial six months of the project. Moreover, the OSCAR partners have cordially prepared and coordinated the foremost tasks and activities planned to take place in the near future.
The presence of the OSCAR project has been shown at the TandemAERodays19.20 event, held from the 27th until the 30th of May 2019, in Bucharest, Romania. The European Aeronautics Days (Aerodays) has been the leading event in aviation research and innovation, mirroring the priorities and strategies set within the European Union's Research Framework Programmes. This year's 8th edition was successfully co-organized by the European Commission and the Romanian Presidency of the European Council.
With this brief survey we want to get a feeling whether and to what extent OPEN SCIENCE is already a topic for the AAT community. You can help us to better analyze awareness and significance of OPEN SCIENCE in European aeronautics.
You can now provide your input by June 30, 2019.
The survey lasts a maximum of 5 minutes. All information is voluntary and anonymous.
The European Aeronautics Science Network publishes on a regular basis an electronic newsletter which is distributed to several thousands of researchers and scientists throughout Europe. An OSCAR-related article has been published in the May 2019 issue of the EASN newsletter, presenting the main concept, objectives and expected impact of the project, aimed at introducing it to the wider European research and scientific community.
The OSCAR project will be proudly presented at the 9th EASN International Conference on “Innovation in Aviation & Space” which will take place in Athens, Greece from the 3rd until the 6th of September, 2019. The OSCAR coordinator, Mr. Gerhard Pauly from Fraunhofer IFAM will present the project in the frame of a session dedicated to running Coordination & Support Actions.
The OSCAR Horizon 2020 Coordination and Support Action was officially launched in January 1st 2019, while the project kick-off meeting took place in January 9th and 10th, 2019; in Brussels at the Fraunhofer premises. All consortium members as well as the INEA/European Commission officer participated at this fruitful gathering.
