FAIR Data: Many paths lead to the EOSC

we were talking with Prof Dr Heike Neuroth Prof Dr Heike Neuroth is Deputy Chairwoman of RDA Germany and a member of the GO FAIR steering committee. In the interview, she shares her assessment of promoting FAIR Data and Open Science.   Ms. Neuroth, on the basis of your many years of experience in the scientific field, how, in your opinion, can good scientific practices be promoted with regard to research data management? Germany seems to be already quite well set up to me. There are currently a number of funding programmes both at the German Research Foundation (DFG) and […]

New open science reports: How to put EOSC and FAIR into practice

by Birgit Fingerle Two recently published reports contain lots of information on putting open science into practice in Europe. Both expert groups and their reports complement each other. On the one hand, will FAIR support the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). On the other hand will the federation of data infrastructure and the application of standards enable the discovery and interoperability of data. The first one is the final report and recommendations of the Commission 2nd High Level Expert Group on the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC): “Prompting an EOSC in practice”. Report: “Prompting an EOSC in practice” The Commission […]

OSPP-REC: Towards the European Open Science Agenda

The Open Science Policy Platform The mandate of the Open Science Policy Platform (OSPP), which has been running for two years now, is to advise the Commission on how to further develop and practically implement open science policy, to radically improve the quality and impact of European science, support policy formulation and implementation, and to offer best practices for open science. As a stakeholder driven advisory board, representing European universities, research organisations, academies, publishers, funding organisations, libraries, young researchers, open science platforms, and citizen scientists, the OSPP aims at giving advice to the Commission as well as directly to the […]

European Open Science Cloud: How libraries can spring into action

The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is to be established as a central infrastructure for open science in Europe. It is therefore important for libraries and other infrastructure institutions to know what role they can play in this context and how they can already become involved in the course of development. The development of the EOSC is flanked by projects such as EOSCpilot. Ilaria Fava and Valentina Cavalli report on the opportunities for libraries to participate and how they can promote open science. What are the goals of the EOSCpilot project? The EOSCpilot is a two-year EC project to support […]

Open Science umsetzen: Forschungsdatenprojekte der ZBW

Forschungsdaten stellen gegenwärtig im Rahmen des digitalen Wandels das zentrale Thema der deutschen Wissenschaftspolitik dar. So fordert der Rat für Informationsinfrastrukturen niedrigschwellige Services für Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler, vernetzte Infrastrukturen für Forschungsdaten und Forschung zu den sich wandelnden Realitäten im Wissenschaftssystem. Services für Wirtschaftsforschende Seit 2014 bietet die ZBW einen Wegweiser zu Forschungsdaten in den Sozial- und Wirtschaftswissenschaften an, der insbesondere für den Nachwuchs unter den Wirtschaftswissenschaftlerinnen und –wissenschaftlern für den Umgang mit Forschungsdaten hilfreich ist und bereits über 6.000 Downloads verzeichnet: “Auffinden. Zitieren. Dokumentieren”. Um die Bedürfnisse von Ökonomen unter anderem in Bezug auf die Arbeit mit Forschungsdaten stets im […]

GO-FAIR: A Member States-Up strategy for the EOSC implementation

The European Commission (EC) launched the INFRADEV-04-2016 Call entitled European Open Science Cloud for Research on April 15 during the European Open Science Cloud Info Day and now a consortium is starting with the work to build up the core elements of the EOSC. But, as the EOSC is more about federating and interconnecting existing research infrastructure and only providing new layers for disciplines without a sufficient infrastructure, proposals are needed how to optimally connect the existing research infrastructure. The EOSC Workshop with Member States representatives of June 29, 2016 clearly identified the need for additional, subsidiary activity and mandate […]

Open Access-Strategie des BMBF – ein wichtiger Lückenschluss

Mit seiner Open Access-Strategie strebt das Bundesministerium für Forschung und Bildung (BMBF) an, Open Access zum Standard zu machen, und stellt darin grünen und goldenen Weg gleichberechtigt nebeneinander. Damit gewinnt Open Access an Fahrt und bereitet möglicherweise den Weg für ein noch stärkeres Bekenntnis zu Open Science.   Am 20.09.2016 hat das BMBF seine Open…

Die European Open Science Cloud in den digitalen Medien

Anfang Mai fand die 3. International Science 2.0 Conference statt, über die Guido Scherp und Johanna Kuhnert in der aktuellen B.I.T-online Ausgabe berichten. Ein Schwerpunkt der Tagung lag auf der European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) – ein hochaktuelles Thema, über das im Moment sehr viel diskutiert wird. So sind auch die ersten Schritte auf EU-Ebene […]
