Project deliverable Open


  • 1. UWTSD


The overarching purpose of FNS-Cloud is to contribute to defragmentation of European food-related research, so research data, tools, and services can be accessed and re-used by user communities. Fragmentation of the research infrastructure is reflected in the lack of provision of training, education and support for user communities and disparity in access to these resources. This Deliverable described development of eLearning and accreditation of course/ modules to meet a variety of user communities’ needs including:

  1. Training (eLearning) on data management and exploitation 
  2. Bespoke eLearning on FNS-Cloud tools and services 
  3. Introductions to user FNS-Cloud cases, field labs, and demonstrators 
  4. eLearning on project management and reporting (internal only) 
  5. Professional development of user communities 

Some of these (Introduction to Open Science, GDPR in research, Licencing for re-use) have been initiated during Period 1 and modules/ courses are available on the FNS-Cloud Community of Practice (CofP), myFNSCloud. Others will be addressed as outputs from Tasks and WPs become available during Periods 2 and 3. myFNSCloud is currently restricted to beneficiaries but will be open to user communities beyond FNS-Cloud in a phased approach from late 2021. The Deliverable also describes the accreditation protocols that have been developed to enable learning achieved through these courses to be acknowledged and ECTS points awarded within the academic framework used by Universities throughout Europe.
