Open Access at UOC

Max and I are organizing an informal meeting next Thursday to start something the like of a debate on open access and free software issues at UOC.

We are inviting Xavier de Pedro (Grup pel Coneixement lliure a la UB, Projecte UniWiki d’Innovació Docent) so he can explain us his/their experiences in fostering open access in learning materials, research publications, and so, and see wheter this can be followed in our university.

The rendez vous is at CometaCinc restaurant, March 16th, at 19:00. If feel like coming, just drop me a line.

  1. It’s a pity I won’t be able to attend that meeting. I know Xavier and he’s pretty enthusiastic about Free Software and Free Knowledge.

  2. If you need a hand-out on open access to research, consider my Open Access Overview . The one-page abridgment is available in Spanish and Catalan (see the links at the bottom).

    Good luck!

  3. I probably will be late, but I’ll do my best to join you in this meeting. I’m a new teacher at UOC in tourism and I’m very interested on those topics open access and free software.
    Congrats for the initiative.
    See ya!

  4. Sincerest thanks to everyone (Jaime, Peter, Oriol and the others who wrote by e-mail)!! I have to admit I was a little scared of the whole thing, but Max is a tough worker and pushed me all the way long until we scheduled the meeting. Most of the honours for the idea and the event are his :)
