She is part of the policy and communication department and involved in various projects promoting Open Science and sustainable Data Management. Ricarda has, for instance, been involved in the creation of the CESSDA Data Management Expert Guide, a training module for early career researchers in the social sciences.

Iryna Kuchma (EIFL)

Iryna Kuchma is the Open Access Programme Manager at EIFL. She coordinates FOSTER and OpenAIRE open science training programmes and co-manages the Community of Practice for training coordinators and managers. 

Gwen Franck (EIFL)

Gwen Franck is the Open Access Programme Coordinator at EIFL. She is working on the FOSTER and OpenAIRE open science training programmes. Her passion for open access led to her becoming a co-founder of Open Access Belgium, an awareness-raising and advocacy organization that spread the word in the Belgian research community about open access to scientific research. She was the project lead on behalf of LIBER for the OpenAIRE FP7 Post-Grant Open Access Pilot and coordinated the local Creative Commons teams in Europe. Gwen is a board member of Open Knowledge Belgium and acts as the lead for Creative Commons Belgium.

Ellen Leenarts (DANS)

In the past few years she has been involved in several European projects; for European Open Science Cloud in EOSCpilot, OpenAIRE, EUDAT and EOSC-hub. Also other projects like the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure, Social Sciences Data Archives Consortium (Training). Most of these projects have a training component that Ellen has been working on, e.g. the taskforce Research Data Management of National Open Access Desks in OpenAIRE or the Community of Practice of training coordinators (OpenAIRE) and new learning resources like the Data Management Expert Guide for CESSDA.

Celia van Gelder (ELIXIR)

Dr. Celia W.G. van Gelder is a chemist by training and obtained her PhD in Biochemistry and Bioinformatics.

Information on the organisers

CESSDA is the Consortium of European Social Science Data Archives. CESSDA provides tools, services and training for researchers and research supporters in the social sciences.

ELIXIR unites Europe’s leading life science organisations in managing and safeguarding the increasing volume of data being generated by publicly funded research. ELIXIR coordinates, integrates and sustains bioinformatics resources (databases, software tools, training materials, cloud storage and supercomputers) across its member states so that they form a single infrastructure. This infrastructure makes it easier for scientists to find and share data, exchange expertise, and agree on best practices. Ultimately, it will help them gain new insights into how living organisms work.  ELIXIR includes 23 members and over 200 research organisations. It was founded in 2014, and is currently implementing its first five-year scientific programme. 

FOSTER (Fostering the practical implementation of Open Science in Horizon 2020 and beyond) EU-funded project contributes to a real and lasting shift in the behaviour of European researchers to ensure that Open Science becomes the norm. FOSTER places specific emphasis on creating discipline-specific guidance on Open Science in life science, social science and humanities; practices train-the-trainer approaches and builds a network of open science trainers. 

DANS (Data Archiving and Networked Services) is the Netherlands institute for permanent access to digital research resources. DANS is an institute of the Dutch Academy KNAW and funding organisation NWO and it provides data services, training and support to help researchers make their data FAIR.
