Accelerating Public Access to Research Data

North Carolina Summit on Accelerating
Public Access to Research Data

NCABR is partnering with the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU), the Association of American Universities (AAU) and the National Science Foundation to host a virtual two-day symposium to address best practices in providing public access to research data.

This virtual symposium will extend access to, and awareness of, the efforts of the APLU/AAU/NSF APARD Steering Committee and associated teams, to institutions of higher education in North Carolina and from across the nation.

The symposium will provide a venue to discuss:

  • Challenges, successes and best practices for making data publicity available
  • What does success look like in relation to making research data publicity available?
  • What is/will be the impact of making research data publicly available?

Who Should Attend?

Each university is encouraged to register as a team with the following four roles represented from each institution:

  • Vice Chancellors/Presidents or Associate Vice Chancellors/Presidents for Research or their designee
  • Information Technology data management professionals
  • Research data librarians
  • Open research data faculty practitioners

What to Expect:

This virtual symposium will be held April 19 (11 a.m. to 3 p.m.) and April 20 (11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) and will consist of plenary presentations and focused, small group sessions, where attendees together will:

  • Share successes and challenges experienced at their institutions when working to accelerate public access to research data; and
  • Identify barriers, propose solutions, define indicators of success and discuss the impact of public access to research data.

In addition, participants will have a directed review of the “Guide to Accelerating Public Access to Research Data” developed by the APLU/AAU/NSF and an opportunity to discuss how the guide will benefit their institutional efforts.

How to Register: 

Registration for this symposium is invitation-only.   If you are interested in participating as a non-NC or APLU Council on Research Research Leader Fellow Institution, please contact Suzanne Wilkison (swilkison@ncabr.org) or Kim Littlefield (kplittle@uncg.edu). There is no cost to participate in the symposium, and each institution is invited to register as a team of up to four people.
