*Training for Open Science in Europe - get involved! *
http://www.fosteropenscience.eu/training-call-2014/

*Call for proposals to host FOSTER training events on open access, open
data and open science*

The FOSTER project (Facilitate Open Science Training for European Research,
http://www.fosteropenscience.eu/) aims to support different stakeholders,
especially young researchers, in practicing open access, open data sharing
and open science. FOSTER will support community training actions via two
annual open calls for events. The first call is issued in February 2014 for
events in June - December 2014, and the second call will be issued in
October 2014 for events in 2015.

Do you feel you can effectively train on open science topics? Can you make
a difference? We are now inviting proposals to host FOSTER training events
on open access, open data and open science to be held from June to December
2014. FOSTER will provide limited co-funding for events. With your help we
want to organize both engaging and instructive events that reach out to
diverse disciplinary communities and countries in the European Research
Area.

We are looking to support different types of training events and
strategies, ranging from short (one or two-hour) workshops, through to
summer schools. Some examples of the training formats and content that we
would like to support:

   - Training targeting graduate schools in European universities, e.g.
   summer schools, seminars, etc.
   - Courses for trainers/multipliers who can carry on further training and
   dissemination activities within their institutions, countries and/or
   disciplinary communities.
   - Workshops for researchers participating in community/disciplinary
   conferences.
   - Training in compliance with the open access policies and rules of
   participation set out for Horizon 2020.
   - Training in integrating open access and open data principles and
   practices in the current research work-flow by targeting young researchers.
   - Training targeting one of the stakeholders - academic staff
   (researchers and students), institutions (research administrators,
   librarians), research project managers, policy-makers and staff working  in
   funding bodies.

*FOSTER support*

FOSTER will provide assistance in shaping the training programme, selecting
training materials and speakers/trainers, etc. Co-funding for the events
will also be provided (such as cost of the venue, materials, travel of
speakers, etc.).

*How to apply and a deadline*

1. Describe the training goals, target audiences, budget needed and any
co-funding offered. Please fill in the application form which can be
downloaded here:
http://www.fosteropenscience.eu/form/training/FOSTER_Training_proposal_form.doc

2. Please submit your training application *no later than Monday, 17 March
2014* here: http://www.fosteropenscience.eu/form/training/.

3. If you have any have technical problems, you can email your training
application to iryna.kuchma[ AT ]eifl.net

*Who can apply?*

Organisations from the European Research Area are eligible to participate.

*Evaluation procedure*

Funding will be granted on a competitive basis. Proposals will be selected
by FOSTER based on the following criteria:

   - Aims and topics of the event targeting open access and open science
   practices, in particular in relation to publicly funded research in Horizon
   2020 and national funding schemes;
   - Outreach potential (number of relevant stakeholders directly involved
   on the training event);
   - Potential for "multiplication" (institutional or disciplinary) 
of
   train the trainers programmes;
   - Level of engagement with Graduate Schools and embedding in standard
   curriculum;
   - National/regional diversity;
   - Disciplinary diversity;
   - Cost-efficiency.

Support will be provided to at least ten training programmes for academic
staff and students, research administrators and librarians, research
project managers and staff working in funding bodies.

Selected proposals will be notified no later than 30 April 2014.

*About FOSTER *

FOSTER (Facilitate Open Science Training for European Research), an
FP7-funded project, aims to accelerate knowledge and practice of open
access and open science, especially among young researchers, across all
fields. In addition, it will mobilize other stakeholders, such as project
managers, administrators, and librarians, in support of this aim.

*Contact person*
