Dear OABN members,

On behalf of the H2020 project reCreating Europe and COMMUNIA, we would like to invite the OABN community to the expert workshop on “Copyright Flexibilities: mapping, explaining, empowering”, which will be held in a hybrid format at the Institute for Information Law (IViR), University of Amsterdam and online (Zoom) on 21 September 2022, from 9:00 to 17:00 CEST.

The workshop will bring together the core research teams that have developed three websites/databases devoted to users’ rights and copyright flexibilities (, and, national copyright experts who contributed to the mapping, and stakeholders representing various groups of beneficiaries.

The aims of the workshop are (i) to launch the three platforms, gather feedback on their functionalities and plan their future; (II) to discuss the state of copyright flexibilities and necessary policy actions at the EU and national level, with three expert panels on (a) teaching and research; (b) freedom of expression and (c) cultural uses and preservation; (iii) to present and test reCreating Europe’s best practices on copyright flexibilities with interested stakeholders.

We would be delighted if OABN members would join us for the entire event or any panel of interest, and particularly to discuss reCreating Europe’s best practices at the dedicated roundtable that will take place after the lunch break (ca. 14.30 CEST). Please note that the event is not restricted to citizens of EU member countries.

We will circulate the final program and list of speakers in due course. Until then, please save the date and confirm your interest and availability to join us in person or online by registering here.

We hope to meet you in Amsterdam or online on 21 September.

Best wishes,

Rosie Allison
