Conscious of the necessity of cultural change in the transition to openness, we want to support the change in the societies of the alliance and member institutions by following the current global developments, with the awareness of our strength coming from the competencies of EELISA. Our aim is to empower research, education and innovation through open science practices to increase efficiency and productivity in light of the EU’s open science policy. We want to bring together and work with all beneficiaries, stakeholders and experts to ensure society gets the most out of science through the policies, strategies and tools developed by EELISA to be part of the open science ecosystem. Accordingly, the community sets forth its mission to promote the systematic development of the open science ecosystem across disciplines and among EELISA members and communities. One of the main activities of this group will be to advocate and raise awareness of open science through organized events at all levels (workshops, information days, panels, etc.) and to support open collaboration with potential multi-participant projects.

Networking, sharing knowledge and best practices within and between other EELISA communities and European open science societies/working groups (such as LERU Open Science Ambassadors) will be another area of focus for the Community. The EELISA OSC also aims to be a part of initiatives related to open science elements and to ensure that the most knowledgeable and talented representatives of EELISA are involved in these initiatives.

This community will seek to pool resources to create a database of recommendations and best practices for open science practitioners. In addition, it will be one of the important goals of EELISA OSC to bring together professionals from different fields/disciplines under training, workshops and working groups to support and develop the open science skills of EELISA partners. Participation in the creation of an EELISA Training Program focusing on Open Science will also be provided.

During its work, the eight objectives of the EU open science policy will be followed and the community will promote the use of tools and services provided by the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).

What is Open Science ?

"An  inclusive construct that combines various movements and practices aiming to  make  multilingual  scientific  knowledge  openly  available,  accessible  and  reusable  for  everyone,  to  increase  scientific  collaborations  and  sharing  of  information for the benefits of science and society, and to open the processes of scientific knowledge creation, evaluation and communication to societal actors beyond the traditional scientific community. It comprises all scientific disciplines  and  aspects  of  scholarly  practices,  including  basic  and  applied  sciences, natural and social sciences and the humanities, and it builds on the following key pillars: open scientific knowledge, open science infrastructures, science  communication,  open  engagement  of  societal  actors  and  open  dialogue with other knowledge systems..." UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science
