Guests: Borana Taraj, Senior Community and Project Manager, EARMA ERION and Mathieu van Kooten, Policy Officer, Erasmus University Rotterdam

Topic: Discussing research integrity is vital as it contributes to an open, safe, and inclusive research culture. We are going to present two ways of fostering research integrity practices within institutions. EARMA ERION is a network for research integrity professionals all over Europe. The Dilemma Game app, an online game has been developed by Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) to stimulate awareness of, and an open and critical discussion about integrity and professionalism in research.

Guest: Daniel Spichtinger, Open Science Specialist

Topic: Data Management Plans (DMPs) are at the heart of many research funder requirements for FAIR data management and open data. Our guest will first outline what the requirements in Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe are and then present the findings of a study that has reviewed the experience of Horizon 2020 beneficiaries with DMPs.

Guests: Judit Fazekas-Paragh, Head of Education and Research Support
Department, University of Debrecen University and National Library and Ádám Száldobágyi, Data Steward, University of Debrecen University
and National Library

Topic: The global and European trends of Open Science changed rapidly in the past decades. We provide an insight to the Hungarian situation: how university libraries reacted and quickly began educating librarians to become key persons of the different aspects of the scholarly
communications. We will discuss what librarians do to raise awareness and keep their knowledge up-to-date regarding Open Science, also how repositories are supported by the operation of the Hungarian Open Repositories Working Group.

Guests: Eva Hnatkova, Open Science Coordinator at the National Library of Technology and University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague

Topic: Open Science is a new way of conducting research by opening up access to research data and results via new digital technologies and collaborative tools. Early-career researchers play an important role in the shift to Open Science, but many of them are still unaware of what Open Science is and how to practice it. So, we will discuss how we could support them.

Guests: Dr. Liise Lehtsalu, Research Support Officer, Eurac Research and Dr. Alberto Scotti, Post-Doctoral Researcher, Eurac Research

Topic: Eurac Research (Bolzano, Italy) has embarked on a deli-berate journey towards a culture of Open Science over the last 5 years. This webinar highlights the approaches adopted to engage, support, and award researchers for Open Science. We also hear the researcher’s perspective about motivations to practice Open Science.

Guest: Laure Fallou, Research officer at the Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC)

Topic: A team of seismologists and social scientists gathered to set up a citizen seismology project in Haiti aiming at collecting seismic data and understanding the people’s risk perception and the usage they could make of low cost seismic sensors. We present how we engaged
with citizens and the collaboration between volunteers, geoscientists and social scientists.

Guest: Dr. ir.-arch. Evi Lambie, deputy project manager of oPEN Lab, VITO / EnergyVille

Topic: The H2020 project oPEN LAB aims to revitalise urban areas across Europe and lead the transition of Positive Energy Neighbourhoods. To achieve this, open innovation living labs are realized within existing urban contexts in three European cities: Genk (Belgium), Pamplona (Spain) and Tartu (Estonia).

Guest: Dr Brandt Dainow, Associate Professor, Department of Philosophy, Maynooth University

Topic: As artificial intelligence systems have spread into society, we have seen many problems arise due to unethical aspects of these systems, such as racial discrimination. We summarise and discuss the steps – “commandments” – developed in the EU to which artificial intelligence systems must comply to be trustworthy and ethical and how they are being embedded into both legislation and systems design.

NKFIH tájékoztató webinárok

Guests: Jeney Nóra és Borza Beatrix az NKFIH szakértői, MSCA NCP-k, és a BME részéről sikeres pályázóink a Vegyészmérnöki és Biomérnöki Karról: Marosi György egyetemi tanár mint supervisor és Szilágyi Botond posztdoktor kutató.

Topic: Mivel jár a supervisori szerep, miért lehet jó és mik a kihívások? Mit jelent a gyakorlatban az, hogy a host institution, a pályázó és a supervisor együtt adják be a pályázatot? Milyen rásegítő lehetőségeket vehetünk igénybe az Európai Bizottság és az NKFIH részéről? Milyen hátteret tud nyújtani mindehhez az Egyetem?

A Maria Sklodowska-Curie Actions Postdoctoral Fellowships által biztosított mobilitási lehetőséggel sok BME-s kutató élt az elmúlt években. Rejlik azonban ebben a felhívásban egy másik lehetőség is, amit eddig kevésbé használtunk: supervisorként a mi kutatóink is fogadhatnak a tehetséges fiatal kutatókat a BME-n a világ bármely részéről. Ebben szeretnénk segíteni mindenkit, akit ez a lehetőség érdekel.

Guests: A webinarra az NKFIH szakértőit hívtuk meg, akik a BME kutatóit tájékoztatják a konstrukciókról, a jelenlegi kiírásokról, a pályázás gyakorlati tudnivalóiról.

Topic: BME FIEK tájékoztató webinar a Horizon Europe keretprogram European Innovation Council (EIC) 2022-es EIC Pathfinder, EIC Transition és EIC Accelerator pályázatairól. Az EIC 2022-es munkaprogramjáról és az egyes pályázati kiírásokról ezen az oldalon lejjebb görgetve a Pillér 3. Innovative Europe részben található bővebb információ.

Guests: A webinarra az NKFIH szakértőit hívtuk meg, akik a BME kutatóit tájékoztatják a konstrukciókról, a jelenlegi kiírásokról, a pályázás gyakorlati tudnivalóiról és az európai szakmai szervezetekben való részvétel lehetőségéről.

Topic: BME FIEK tájékoztató webinar a Horizon Europe keretprogram EUREKA Electronic Components and Systems, Key Digital Technologies, Smart Networks and Services pályázatairól. A pályázatok témakörei: electronic components and systems; semiconductors, micro- and nanoelectronics based systems and applications; industrial leadership for Europe in 5G and 6G, wireless communication technologies.
