Knowledge Rights 21 Webinar — Enabling the reuse of the scholarly publication: modus operandi et modus desiderandi

LIBER and SPARC Europe will host the first of a two-part webinar series for The Knowledge Rights 21 Project (KR21) on 4 May 2023, from 16:30-18:00 CEST. During the event, attendees will hear the findings from two projects taking place within KR21 – Project Zero (focused on Secondary Publishing Rights) and Project Retain (focused on Rights Retention and Open Licensing).


Are you passionate about Open Access and the right to knowledge for all? This webinar will share research findings from KR21 — which aims to transform the legislative landscape 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.

Who is it for?

The webinar is an excellent opportunity for interested parties to engage in a dialogue among Open Science stakeholders, policymakers, copyright experts, academic librarians, and researchers.
