Outbreak Science

Outbreak Science; A nonprofit to advance the science of outbreak response.

Recent epidemics of H1N1 influenza, Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), chikungunya, Ebola, and Zika, highlight the global importance of infectious disease outbreaks. The scale, speed, and diversity of these epidemics demand an equally scalable, rapid, and agile scientific response to prevent and control their impact.

Outbreak Science, a nonprofit founded in 2016, aims to support open data, open access, and open science in the context of epidemic responses.

2nd Open Science FAIR Conference

Open Science is a new research paradigm facing many challenges, mainly the ingrained research habits accompanied by non-incentive institutional and funder reward systems, the lack of embedded tools and services, the connection to non-academic communities.

OSFair2019 is organized as an emblematic initiative of OpenAIRE, co-organized by 3 other EU projects in the area of Open Science: FIT4RRI, EOSC Secretariat and FAIRsFAIR. It is locally curated by the University of Minho.

Open Science Fair will critically showcase the elements required for the transition to Open Science: e-infrastructures and services, policies as guidance for good practices, research flows and new types of activities (disseminate, mine, review, assess, etc.), the roles of the respective actors and their networks.

Open Science Data Cloud

The Open Science Data Cloud provides the scientific community with resources for storing, sharing, and analyzing terabyte and petabyte-scale scientific datasets. The OSDC is a data science ecosystem in which researchers can house and share their own scientific data, access complementary public datasets, build and share customized virtual machines with whatever tools necessary to analyze their data, and perform the analysis to answer their research questions. It is a one-stop shop for making scientific research faster and easier.

FOSTER – Open Science

The FOSTER portal is an e-learning platform that brings together the best training resources addressed to those who need to know more about Open Science, or need to develop strategies and skills for implementing Open Science practices in their daily workflows.

Here you will find a growing collection of training materials. Many different users – from early-career researchers, to data managers, librarians, research administrators, and graduate schools – can benefit from the portal. In order to meet their needs, the existing materials will be extended from basic to more advanced-level resources. In addition, discipline-specific resources will be created.

Opensource.dev – Introduction to Open Source

Google has launched a new educational site at opensource.dev that offers a succinct and approachable introduction to open source software and licensing.

Google believes that open source is good for everyone. By being open and freely available, it enables and encourages collaboration and the development of technology, solving real world problems.

At Google, we’ve always used open source to innovate. We want to give something back; we enjoy being a part of the community. We often release code to push the industry forward or share best practices we developed. But sometimes, it’s just fun and interesting code. The list of projects we’ve released and contribute to is long and continues to grow.

African Open Science Platform

The future African Open Science Platform will be launched during the upcoming SFSA2018 (12-14 Dec. 2018, CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria, SA) meeting. Please read more about the preparatory work done as part of AOSP at http://africanopenscience.org.za/. We also want to thank you for your contribution in taking this project forward, and for incredible support all over the continent!

OpenUP Hub

OpenUP Hub is an open, dynamic and collaborative knowledge environment that systematically captures, organizes and categorizes research outcomes, best practices, tools, and guidelines relevant to review-dissemination-assessment phases of the research lifecycle through the prism of Open Science.
