European Commission: webinar on Copyright in Collaborative Projects

The European Commission has organized a webinar on “Copyright in Collaborative Projects” that will be held on 30 November 2022.

The event will provide an overview of copyright and how it should be managed in collaborative projects. Many of the outputs from collaborative projects may be protected using copyright, for example, academic papers, other publications. Unlike some other rights, copyright comes into existence automatically, and particular attention is therefore needed for its management.

The event will focus, among other topics, on what is copyright and why it is important, when it should be used and what are the issues related to scientific publications and Open Science, also with reference to the recent Copyright Directive issued in 2019 which raises issues for online content and the use of social media.

This Webinar is offered free of charge and will be held online. Registration is mandatory and can be done at the event website.
