*Deadline for applications extended till 15 August 2022. *

The International Research Center of Big Data for Sustainable Development
Goals is cooperating with CAS-TWAS Centre of Excellence on Space Technology
for Disaster Mitigation, CODATA (and in particular its GOSC Initiative) and
the Chinese National Committee of CODATA to and other support agencies to
organise this year's international training workshop on Open Science and
SDGs. The training will be held online.

With the advent of the 21st century, human beings face unprecedented
opportunities and challenges that call for Open Science and open
collaboration. In response, the Sustainable Development Agenda was
developed, and 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by all
UN Member States in 2015 to address the critical global issues, including
poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and
justice. In recent years, the concept of Open Science has been
actively embraced by all walks of life and various disciplines. As stated
in the UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science, Open Science has
significantly transformed the way of knowledge production and distribution.
It has been increasingly recognized as a critical accelerator for the
achievement of the SDGs and a true game-changer in bridging the science,
technology, and innovation gaps and fulfilling the human right to science.

By providing a scientific and practical guide to the use of Big Earth Data
in relation to SDG-13, the objective of this training workshop is to
increase expertise and build capacity of Open Science, thus contributing to
the achievement of the UN SDGs. Participants will receive free online
training focusing on knowledge and skills for valuable SDG-related cloud
platforms, services, resources, and tools, especially with strong support
from the CASEarth project. The deadline for applications is 11:59 pm CST
(UTC+8) on August 15th.
