This is a Q-SORT outreach event in collaboration with CERN , Zenodo and OpenAIRE Advance.

Q-SORT is delighted to announce a collaboration with OpenaAire Advance, CERN  and ZENODO  in an upcoming webinar on Open Science.

The webinar, “Making Open Science Work for You“, will be broadcasted on 2 July 2019, h. 16:30-17:30 (Facebook Live, https://www.facebook.com/quantumsorter/), as part of the Q-SORT Conference on Quantum Imaging and Electron Beam Shaping.

The talk will be presented by Najla Retteberg (OpenAire Project, Goettingen University, Germany) and Tim Smith (CERN, Switzerland)

This joint presentation will cover the importance of Open Science for the future of scholarly research. It will explain how Zenodo works and how CERN is working to support Open Science.

The presentation will also cover services for Open Science and the work of OpenAIRE within the context of the European Commission Open Science Policy.

“We are so pleased that we were able to make this happen” said Vincenzo Grillo, the Principal Investigator of Q-SORT. “OpenScience is a hot subject now and we are striving to position our project on the forefront. We are grateful to OpenAire Advance and CERN for their cooperation in this initiative”.



Najla Rettberg is the Scientific Manager of the OpenAIRE Advance.
She is a librarian with extensive experience in open access, open science, e- infrastructures and digital preservation. An Arabist by training, she has also worked as a consultant for a range of institutions including King’s College London, the Digital Preservation Coalition and OCLC.

Tim Smith is Head of Collaboration, Devices and Applications Group at CERN, the European Particle Physics Laboratory.
Tim is an Open Science advocate leading initiatives at CERN and in the wider science community. He drove the launch of CERN’s Open Data Portal to share Large Hadron Collider big data with the world, as well as the Higgs Boson webcast which shared its discovery live around the globe. He also instigated and nurtures Zenodo within the European Commission’s OpenAIRE project as an open data service for world-wide science. Tim came to CERN at the end of the 80s, obtained a PhD in Particle Physics and performed research at the Large Electron-Positron accelerator for 10 years. He then joined the CERN IT Department to lead teams innovating in computing farm management and physics data management.
