Abstract: “How NRENs and Universities are Supporting Open Science”

This talk will introduce Open Science and the support services being offered by NRENs and research performing organisations to assist researchers with managing and sharing their data. It will reflect on some of the key challenges being faced across the sector and ways in which cross-institutional approaches or national providers such as NRENs can assist with these.
