The second part of the conference (October 17th and 18th) is MedOANet European Conference. The final conference of MedOANet project will serve to present the results of the project, placing them in the wider European perspectives on Open Access policies, and providing a forum for the current debate on Open Access policy implementation practices within the EU.
