The “Good Practice Exchange” (GPE) program of OpenAIRE is aimed to support National Open Access Desks colleagues (NOADs) and consortium members in 2020 to visit another consortium partner to exchange and learn about Open Science aspects, such as “Embedding Open Science Practices”, “Open Science Policy and its Practical Alignment in an Institutional Context”, “National Coordination of Open Science and Research Data Management”, and “Repository Operation and Metadata Management Best Practices”.?
Bielefeld University Library in Germany (UNIBI) was the first of four partners to host a GPE workshop from 4 – 5 February 2020. Because of UNIBIs role in OpenAIRE regarding the aggregation management of metadata from data sources and its transformation into the OpenAIRE research graph UNIBI was predestinated for the topic ”Repository operation and metadata management best practices”.?
