Are you passionate about Open Access and the right to knowledge for all? LIBER and SPARC Europe are co-organizing a webinar to share research findings from the KR21 project! The Knowledge Rights 21 (KR21) programme aims to reform copyright policy and practice in Europe to ensure that everyone has the right to knowledge.

In this webinar, you will learn about the preliminary findings of two KR21 projects, Project Zero and Project Retain, and how  they help pave the way to Open Access. We invite the community of research libraries to open a dialogue among Open Science stakeholders about the options, good practices, lessons learnt, challenges and impact of two legal instruments: Secondary Publishing Rights (SPR) and Rights Retention and Open Licensing. Our expert speakers will share valuable insights and real-world examples of how these mechanisms have been applied around Europe.

This is an excellent opportunity to engage in a dialogue among Open Science stakeholders, policymakers, copyright experts, academic librarians, and researchers.
