PASTEUR4OA/Update on PASTEUR4OA SE Regional Workshop for RPOs in Athens

EKT organized on November 3rd, 2015 the first South-East Europe Workshop. Participants included policymakers from RPOs in Greece, Cyprus, Turkey, Bulgaria, Serbia and FYROM. Presentations and subsequent discussions, allowed participants to familiarize themselves with the concept of Open Access, the European framework, and the elements required for an institutional policy to be effective and to exchange ideas and share their (common) concerns in relation to the challenges related to the adoption of Open Access policies in their institutions. As countries in the region are newcomers in terms of Open Access policies, lessons from other regions as well as from institutions in SE Europe with institutional policies are expected to reinforce related efforts through the creation of a critical mass.
