Impulse for national network organisation Open Science Communities-NL

The Open Science Communities-NL (OSC-NL) network will receive a grant of 400,000 euros. This was decided by the Open Science NL steering committee on 17 May.

OSC-NL will use this to work on knowledge exchange, community management and sustainability of our bottom-up network. Professionalisation and expansion are also on the programme.

OSC-NL’s grant application outlines their plans for the next four years. The application is openly available here. The plans are divided into four work packages, each led by one of the members of the Executive Team.

  • Networking
  • Knowledge management
  • Increase visibility and findability of local Open Science Communities and open science expertise
  • Organisational embedding and perpetuation of OSC-NL after the project period

SURF will facilitate the Open Science communities as a partner in open science, to realise the ambitions in the exchange of knowledge, community management and embedding the Open Science Communities in a sustainable way.
