Open Science Interview
In this interview, The Guild discusses with the European Commission how Open Science will be mainstreamed in Horizon Europe and what are the concrete implications for researchers and their institutions.
Open Science will become the modus operandi in Horizon Europe, the next EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. This will affect provisions such as those regarding publications, research data management, and the engagement of citizens in the project.
To provide a glimpse into the expected changes, The Guild interviewed Mr. Konstantinos Glinos, Head of Unit for Open Science at the European Commission, Directorate-General for Research and Innovation (DG RTD).
During this discussion, we first explore the topic of Open Science as a strategic priority, its contribution to research efficiency, and the barriers that prevent the speeding up and the uptake and implementation of Open Science. We then delve into the main changes expected in Horizon Europe in the areas of Open Access, research data management, and Citizen Science. Finally, we also examine how Open Science could be embedded in the entire research process, from the methodology definition until the sharing of final results.
We hope this video will help researchers and institutions to prepare for the forthcoming requirements in Horizon Europe.
