We welcome the adoption by the Council of the European Union (EU) of the conclusions on high-quality, transparent, open, trustworthy, and equitable scholarly publishing. As key public research and innovation actors in Europe, we are committed to supporting the development of a publicly owned, not-for-profit scholarly communication ecosystem in collaboration with policymakers in Europe and beyond.
Potentially transformative positions on scholarly publishing have now been agreed by the EU’s member state governments, receiving a warm initial welcome from the academic sector.
Open Science: Stakeholders welcome European efforts towards publicly owned and not-for-profit scholarly communication
It is the opinion of European public R&I actors that publicly funded research and its results should be immediately and openly available to all, without barriers. This is essential to drive knowledge forward, promote innovation, and tackle social issues.
Research commissioner given unpaid leave from Brussels after she was nominated to be Bulgaria’s next prime minister. Research lobbyists say the timing is ‘particularly unfortunate’ as work begins to shape the next decade of R&I policy
This report highlights the main ideas and insights that emerged from the 18 and 19 October 2022 Conference on Open Science, organised by Science Europe.
Science Europe is pleased to announce that it is signing the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA).
Gender equality and diversity are essential components of scientific quality. Science Europe works to promote a research ecosystem where all scholars can realise their potential regardless of their gender, sexual orientation, religion, disabilities, ethnic origin, or social background.
Researchers, research services, and other community members at Research Funding and Performing Organisations play a key role in establishing recognition systems through the research assessment processes that they implement. These recognition systems strongly contribute to determining what is understood as research quality and excellence. Based on the Science Europe Values Framework (published in July 2022), this paper provides practical recommendations and good practice examples detailing how research organisations can continuously improve the way they assess research and researchers. The recommendations help to embed our shared values and contribute to the evolution of research cultures in Europe.
Science Europe, along with the European University Association (EUA) and the Conference of European Schools for Advanced Engineering Education and Research (CESAER), supports the environmental goals set by the EU's sustainable finance taxonomy regulation. However, Science Europe calls for caution regarding the broad application of the Do No Significant Harm (DNSH) principle to all projects under European research and innovation (R&I) framework programmes, including Horizon Europe.
Interdisciplinarity for the Net-Zero Transition: the Perspectives of Universities and Research Organisations
This report presents the actions that universities and research organisations are taking to address the climate crisis and the challenges they face. These were presented at the symposium 'Interdisciplinarity for the Net-Zero Transition' of 3 November 2022, in the lead-up to COP27.
In 2023, Science Europe continues working with its Member Organisations to reinforce the collective capacity to communicate research more effectively and to enhance the communication of science to society. Science Communication emerged as a new priority area in itself in the framework of Science Europe’s Strategy Plan 2021–2026.
On Tuesday 28 March, the Coalition for Advancing Research Assessment (CoARA) took a big step forward by launching its call for Working Group proposals and national chapters. CoARA is a community initiative at its core, and therefore the working groups will be central to the success of the initiative and to the reform process more generally.
Science-Policy in Action for the Green and Digital Transition. A New Study Launched at a High-Level Event
“Science can and shall contribute to improving our societies”. With these words, the new Science Europe study “Science–Policy in Action. Insights for the Green and Digital Transition” starts with the analysis and mapping of Science Europe member organisations’ science–policy interfaces.
This report aims to identify activities for science-informed policy making, to map those funded and performed by Science Europe Member Organisations, and suggests some recommendations. It is based on a survey held among Science Europe Member Organisations and a subsequent focus group.
How to become an effective science-policy advisor? The science-policy interactions have a longstanding relationship with complex dynamics. The COVID pandemic was only one of the ‘wicked problem’, where decision-makers called for science-informed advice. This report showcases 16 lessons learnt from the event Good Advice for (Young) Science-Policy Advisors, organised by Science Europe, FORMAS and Marie Curie Alumni Association on 29 April 2022.
In summer 2022 a group of mathematicians of Ukrainian origin initiated an ambitious project – a new Centre for mathematical sciences with a mission to support top-level research in mathematics and train younger generations of scientists. The International Centre for Mathematics in Ukraine was subsequently registered in Ukraine in autumn 2022.
