The proposed event frames in the landscape of actions carried out in Africa to promote FAIR principles and Open Science commons, such as digital repositories and persistent identifiers both for researchers and their research outputs. We aim at bringing in the same virtual place solution seekers, solution providers, policy makers and end users to trigger new collaborations through an original and innovative “try before you buy” approach.

The event is proposed to last 3 hours and it is divided in three parts: a workshop, a brokerage session, and a hands-on tutorial.

Although the proposed event is mainly targeting the ASREN region, it already includes contributions from Europe as well as from other parts of Africa and, if the proposal will be accepted, proponents will act to involve as many other countries as possible due to their involvement in AfricaConnect3, LIBSENSE and other related initiative.
