Eurodoc Statement on Framework Programme 9
lkfitz's bookmarks 2017-12-29
"The EC has ambitious plans to open up research and innovation through a threefold strategy of Open Innovation, Open Science, and Open to the World. Eurodoc supports this new vision for Europe and in particular embraces Open Science. A recent survey from Eurodoc and the EC shows that researchers are unaware of Open Science practices and policy initiatives, are not receiving training or institutional support for Open Science, and are not yet using standardised guidelines, metadata, or Data Management Plans (DMPs) to do Open Science. We ask the EC to take the next step in implementing Open Science and address these issues by creating a fourth pillar of Open Science in FP9 which will directly fund raising awareness, training, and supporting researchers in Open Science."
