We are pleased to invite you to the GODAN Webinar on “Open Access & Open Data at PUSH Universities” on Oct 29, 2018 4:00 PM CET

PUSH (Presidents United to Solve Hunger) is a consortium of universities from around the world that have the collective mission to end hunger and poverty. Presidents who have signed the Presidents’ Commitment to Food and Nutrition Security have agreed to make food and nutrition security a priority on their campus.

This webinar will introduce PUSH and will summarize the findings from an exploratory study of 99 PUSH universities in developing, using, and promoting open access and open data policies and practices. This report identified issues and obstacles, level of support provided to faculty, useful resources and best practices, and comparison of findings to the GODAN donor report.

The webinar will be led by Anne Mims Adrian and Kara Newby of PUSH and the Hunger Solutions Institute at Auburn University, USA. They will discuss current status open data policies, practices, perceptions of benefits, challenges, and barriers of open data at these universities.

You can register for the Webinar here. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

We thank CTA for organising the webinar. We are looking forward to see you all later today for discussions and exploring future collaborations.
