Consequences and interdependencies of national and institutional policies

Policies can contribute to fostering principles of open science and open data. In this webinar, representatives from funding bodies and universities as well as EOSC stakeholders discuss the role and consequences of policies on a national and institutional level, and how they interact. Further discussion points will be e.g. the consequences of open access policies and to what extent policies can be regarded as an indicator for sustainability.

To create a base for the discussion, two input presentations will give an overview on existing policies on a national as well as on an institutional level to assess the status quo of policies of stakeholders such as funders, national government and universities. Lisa Hönegger from EOSC-Pillar will sketch the results of the “National Initiatives” Survey and Joy Davidson from DCC will present an overview of existing national policies, position papers, strategies and statements of OS in relevant documents.

Joy Davidson, from Digital Curation Centreand member of FAIRsFAIR, together with SPARC Europe, will do a presentation on Overview of National Policies and Strategies on FAIR.
