12 April 2019, Bucharest, Romania


Open Science Policy Platform (OSPP) and DG for Research and Innovation, European Commission are inviting you to take part of the stakeholders’ consultation event – New indicators to support Open Science, organized on 12 April 2019, in Bucharest, Romania.

For Open Science to be successful, it must become embedded at every level and in every aspect of the scientific endeavor and not be perceived as separate from (or even in competition with) current practice. Quantitative and qualitative indicators need to be identified and developed for research assessment that captures the full range of contributions, including open science, to the knowledge system. These should reflect the complexity and varied context of the research environment, the specific characteristics of the research being undertaken, as well as the new kinds of questions and results that might emerge in an open system.

What emerges from this overview is the sense that the key bottleneck in the establishment of Open Science is the mismatch between the existing rewards system and the practices we would like to see emerge.  For this reason, OSPP will present a document as an attempt to start and facilitate a discussion among stakeholders, regarding new indicators to support Open Science practices. The topics that will be covered are detailed in the attached event’s agenda.

The Romanian research organizations, research funding agencies, and universities are expected to be represented at this event.

For logistic reasons, all participants should register online by filling in the following form. A limited number of places are available; therefore first registered-first served policy will be applied.

The event starts at 9:30 precisely.

The Venue :  AULA , Biblioteca Centrala Universitara  ”Carol I”, 88 Victoriei street, Bucharest


Looking forward to welcoming you soon,


On behalf of the European Open Science Policy Platform,

Prof. Manuela Epure
