European Research Libraries, Funding Organizations and Others Share “A Vision for Open Science” in New Report
A few months after the very exciting workshop Research Institutions and Libraries and the role of Funders in the European Open Science Cloud, which brought together key representatives of research funding organisations, research institutions and libraries, a group of participants have produced a report outlining their vision for open science.
The workshop Research Institutions and Libraries and the role of Funders in the European Open Science Cloud — held at the LIBER Annual Conference in Lille, France on 4 July 2018 — was organised by LIBER as part of the EOSCpilot project of the European Commission.
From the Report’s Abstract
Funders are well positioned to shift the incentives for open science inherent in grant application processes and improve the way research is evaluated. Institutions can change the status quo by promoting and rewarding researchers’ careers, and collaborating with research libraries in contributing to development of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) infrastructure, tools and relevant skills.
