UEFISCDI (the host of the Romanian Open Science Knowledge Hub and the Romanian Programme Operator for the Research Area under EEA and Norway Grants) organizes the on-line international
workshop “Building Consistency for Open Science in Europe - rhetorics and practices”.
The event is organised with the support of Scientific Knowledge Services.
The discussions are addressed to the research and innovation communities from the countries beneficiaries of EEA and Norway Grants and other further interested communities and organisations
The workshop will take place during 2 days and will tackle the challenges associated with making open science a reality: how research is undertaken, how the outputs are stored and disseminated,
how researchers collaborate, how success is measured and how researchers are rewarded for Open Science approaches. A special focus will be given to the challenges and practices of
embedding open access to the research results as it is mandated by the EEA and Norway Financial Mechanism.
With a research culture that had to prove its principles during pandemic times, new funding cycles and an increasing number of Open Science national roadmaps, we see the need to bind the
rhetoric and practice of this new way of doing research.
This event is organised to host deep conversation and interaction for topics like:
Open Science at a Glance: its current state at various European countries
Current practices for making Open Access effective strategies
Open Science, Research Assessment and Career Development.
Supporting Open Science: the role of academic institutions and the role of other research organisations
How do we differentiate regionally and nationally?
What Open Science means for public-private partnerships?
How Open Science and Competitiveness go together?
Citizen Science - an essential part of Open Science in Europe
We expect an audience of researchers, funders, research administrators, knowledge transfer officers and research libraries (other professionals being welcome). We expect the main audience
to come from the countries listed under the EEA and Norway Grants (https://eeagrants.org/), but we encourage even more international participation. The research community nurtured by the EEA and Norway Grants is dynamic and
responsive, therefore we expect consistent participation.
The language of this event is English. Please feel welcomed to participate in the sessions and to extend your professional network at international level.

Open Science – a blueprint
for the university in the 21st century?
This paper will look at the 8 pillars of Open Science, as defined by the European
Commission and described in the LERU (League of European Research Libraries) Open Science Roadmap, and which be analysed in the forthcoming LERU paper on Best Practice in adopting Open Science
principles and policies. What are the strengths and challenges in each of the 8 pillars of Open Science and what is the range of responses that universities could make? In this landscape, the
paper will then look at four of the 8 pillars, Open Access Publishing, Research Data Management and Open data E-Infrastructures (European Open Science Cloud), Promotions/Rewards and the
responsible use of Bibliometrics, and Citizen Science. It will take UCL (University College London) as an exemplar of good practice and demonstrate with real life examples how this university has
implemented new platforms and services, established new policies and practice, showing the benefits and the challenges of these approaches.
