FOSTER is an EU project aiming at identifying, enriching and providing training content on relevant Open Science topics in support of implementing EC‘s Open Science Agenda in the European Research Area. During the previous two years a wealth of training resources have been collected, which are now presented in a dedicated training portal. The paper describes how to use the FOSTER training platform and the tools available to identify suitable training materials and create modular e-learning courses.
