The Science Europe Strategy Plan comes at a crucial time for European Research an Innovation (R&I) and includes an updated vision, mission, values, and set of strategic priorities for the association. It supports its Member Organisation in their mission to create world-class scientific knowledge, delivering more benefit for our societies.
This Multi-annual Action Plan proposes a series of framework actions to guide the implementation of the Science Europe Strategy Plan 2021–2026 in line with the association's updated vision, mission, values, and strategic priorities.
On 27 January 2021, Science Europe presented the second, extended version of its Practical Guide to the International Alignment of Research Data Management during a webinar with more than 260 participants.
As it was unfortunately not possible to address all questions participants asked during the launch event, this document presents the answers to the questions asked to both Science Europe and the webinar speakers.
The interoperability and sustainability of research data are an indispensable element of the shift towards an Open Science system. Join us as we present strategic guidance for research performers, funders, and data infrastructures to help ensure long-term preservation and accessibility of research data.
This Practical Guide provides guidance to ensure the long-term preservation and accessibility of research data. Three complementary maturity matrices provide funders, performers, and data infrastructures with a way to create a common understanding of the approaches needed.
The year 2020 saw a global pandemic attest to the value of science. In the race for COVID-19 treatments and vaccines, Science Europe’s Member Organisations were at the forefront of the global response and our association became more relevant and important than ever.
Released in partnership with the CESAER and the European University Association (EUA) this joint statement outlines how all publishers must fully respect researchers’ rights by providing clarity and transparency on Open Access.
CESAER, the European University Association (EUA), and Science Europe call on all publishers to fully respect researchers’ rights and to end the use of restrictions and embargoes.
This briefing paper aims to support decision makers at research organisations and research funders to develop new monitoring exercises or assess and improve existing processes to measure the Open Access status of publications.
The Science Europe Practical Guide to the International Alignment of Research Data Management (RDM Guide) has seen an important uptake, being referenced and used by a large number of stakeholders within and beyond European borders.
Science Europe, COAR, CoreTrustSeal, the European University Association, and the World Data System issue this Joint Position Statement to highlight the community’s concerns over the 'Data Repository: Selection Criteria that Matter' recommendations and request that the authors of these criteria respond with specific actions.
Science Europe and cOAlition S publish an in-depth report and recommendations arising from a study of community-driven Open Access journals across the world that are free for readers and authors, usually referred to as 'OA diamond journals'.
At this event Science Europe launches the updated edition of its Guide for Aligning Research Data Management across Europe, now with a new DMP evaluation rubric.
Developed by experts from Science Europe Member Organisations, this guide aims to align research data management (RDM) requirements across research organisations. Originally released in 2019, it was updated in January 2021 to include guidance to support the evaluation of data management plans (DMPs).
2021 will see a busy start for Science Europe’s priority area ‘Research Data’ with two online events organised in the first few weeks of the year. Both events are milestone of Science Europe’s work plan and with these activities Science Europe reinforces its commitment to Open Science, an important area for research and innovation.
Report of the 2020 High Level Workshop on ERA: The ERA Contribution to the post-COVID-19 Recovery and Transition to a Resilient Society
The 2020 edition of the Science Europe High Level Workshop on ERA was co-hosted with the Foundation for Science and Technology and the Portuguese Ministry of Science, Technology, and Higher Education. It explored how research and innovation can contribute to crisis recovery and to societal resilience in the context of an evolving research culture.
In its response to the European Commission, Science Europe highlights that future EU legislation on AI needs to strike the right balance between safeguards for users and developers of AI systems, and a legal environment that fosters R&I.
In its response to the European Commission Roadmap for an upcoming legislative proposal on the governance of common European data spaces, Science Europe reinforces the need to consider sectoral policies to ensure coherence.
Science Europe calls on the European Commission to take into account the important role of the research sector as producer and user of data. The longstanding experience of the research sector should feed into the development of an overarching EU data strategy that promotes data access across sectors.
In its response to the EC consultation on the European Strategy for Data, Science Europe also underlines the need to consider sectoral policies to ensure coherence between overarching and sectoral policies.
Implementing Research Data Management Policies Across Europe: Experiences from Science Europe Member Organisations
Does your organisation want to develop requirements for data management plans (DMPs) or update existing ones?
