The Open Science Fund is open to researchers from all fields of research. The aim is to support researchers in developing, testing and implementing innovative ways of making research open, accessible, transparent and reusable across the full breadth of Open Science. One million euros will be available in the first round for projects of up to 50,000 euros.
According to Stan Gielen, chair of NWO, The Open Science Fund is an important next step in recognising and rewarding open research practices: “Open Science requires a culture change. We try to achieve this in as many ways as possible, but we are not going to achieve this only through conditions and rules. It is crucial that we reward those researchers that already put Open Science into practice. That is what we hope to achieve with the Open Science Fund ”.
