Everybody is talking about Open Science & FAIR data and many students and young researchers have expectations about their careers and research best practices. 

"Will my career get better if I FAIRify my data? 

When someone will evaluate my research, will the fact that my data complies with all the Open Science best practices matter? Or am I just losing time I should rather spend publishing on whatever journal I can lay hands on?

And where am I supposed to learn how to be fair and open anyway?"

The right answer to these questions is crucial. Still, it is also the point which can make the difference between succeeding or failing in establishing Open Science (and ultimately Good Science). To be able to shift the research evaluation system in Europe to produce quality and reliable data, to set up a working incentive system for individual researchers and organisations is one of the keys to the widespread uptake of Open Science and FAIR practices. And being so crucial a point, we believe that researchers, Research Infrastructures, scientific organisations should have a say in this.

During the ESOF2020 the Euroscience Open Forum, in September, it will take place an interactive session, organised by the EC INFRAEOSC-CALL-5 Projects, including, FAIRsFAIR, EOSC PillarEOSC Synergy, EOSC-NordicExPaNDSNI4OS, that aim at co-create the European Open Science Cloud, stepping from the Stakeholder Community needs.

The session aims to present and discuss good ideas, innovative pilots, proposed policies from all across Europe.

The format will include mini TED from expert speaker to introduce the debate and audience contribution via World Café and/or using interactive tools depending on the number of participants.


Themes for discussion will include

  • Research Evaluation, Incentives and Rewards in the Open Science Era
  • Skills for the career programme with focus on Data Steward
  • Policies for implementing Open Science
