Building more equity and inclusion with DataCite’s Global Access Fund

September 13, 2023 @ 7:00 am 8:00 am UTC+0

DataCite is thrilled to launch a Global Access Fund (GAF), established to enable organizations worldwide to make their research outputs discoverable. It will provide financial support for outreach activities and infrastructure development to enable more organizations to benefit from DataCite infrastructure services. The GAF is part of the DataCite Global Access Program (GAP) made possible by grant Grant 2022-316573 from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. Applications are open to non-profit stakeholders within the research ecosystem (e.g. research institutions, associations, NRENs, government bodies, service providers) based in Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, and Asia.

Join us for this informative session to learn about:

  • The scope, eligibility, and timeline of the fund
  • How to apply and to get support during the process
  • The evaluation and selection criteria
