PPMI to coordinate Horizon 2020 project OpenUp

In this project PPMI will coordinate and lead a team of 9 organisations from Austria, Germany, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands and Switzerland in a Horizon2020 funded project OpenUp. This project addresses key aspects and challenges of the currently transforming science landscape and aspires to come up with a cohesive framework for the review-disseminate-assess phases of the research life cycle that is fit to support and promote Open Science.   Its main objectives are to:

  • identify and determine ground-breaking mechanisms, processes and tools for peer-review for all types of research results (publications, data, software),
  • explore, identify and classify innovative dissemination mechanisms with an outreach aim towards businesses and industry, education, and society as a whole,
  • analyze a set of novel indicators that assess the impact of research results and correlate them of channels of dissemination.

The final outcome of the project will be a set of concrete, practical, validated policy recommendations & guidelines for national and European stakeholders, including EU institutions, a valuable tool in advancing a more open and gender-sensitive science system.
