YEAR board member Michela Vignoli will represent the YEAR Network at the High-Level Advisory Group ‘Open Science Policy Platform’ (OSPP) that has been established by the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation.
The members of the Advisory Group will meet twice a year to discuss the documents and general orientations proposed by the European Commission to further develop and implement a European Open Science Policy. The Advisory Group is composed of top level representatives from universities, research organisations, adacemies/learned societies, funding organisations, citizen science organisations, publishers, open science platforms/intermediaries, and libraries. The goals of the OSPP are in line with Commissioner Moedas’ priority to radically improve the quality and impact of science in Europe.
