Report: Ireland Invests €1.9m to Make More Research Freely Available
From Silicon Republic:
The Irish Government has announced new funding to advance the country’s goals in making research open access.
The fresh funding of €1.9m [approx. $2.01m/USD] will be used to increase public engagement with research and establish a culture of open research. The overall goal is to have 100pc of research publications freely available to the public.
The funding is going to Ireland’s National Open Research Forum (NORF), which was established in 2017 to push Ireland’s agenda in open research.
The €1.9m is being specifically administered by the Digital Repository of Ireland, which is the coordinating organisation for NORF. This funding will be distributed through funding calls under NORF’s 2023 Open Research Fund.
