A training session in Open Access in Inspire4Nature took place remotely on the 24th June 2020.
The aim of this module was to ensure fellows understand how Open Access (of data and of publications) works in practice, and specifically what our obligations are in Inspire4Nature.
This training module was organised by the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique.

Inspire4Nature’s Supervisory Board held an extraordinary remote meeting on the 20th April 2020 to discuss the effects of the ongoing covid19 pandemic on the project.
The Supervisory Board is the decision-making body governing the Inspire4Nature Consortium, responsible for the overall management and monitoring of the project. It is composed of one member of each participant organisation, as well as two representatives of the fellows as observers. This extraordinary meeting was convened to discuss how the ongoing covid19 epidemic is affecting the project, including effects on the fellows’ individual training programme and consequences for the project-wide training programme.
