The European University Association welcomes the adoption by the Council of the European Union of the Conclusions on research assessment and implementation of Open Science.
This report presents the detailed results from the EUA 2020-2021 Open Science Survey with a focus on research data practices at universities in Europe.
The EUA Open Science Agenda 2025 defines the Association’s priorities in this field and describes the current context, challenges and developments envisaged for the coming years. In addition, it outlines the actions EUA will take to drive this agenda forward.
This report specifically presents the findings on Open Access from EUA’s 2020-2021 Open Science Survey.
This report presents a collection of seven case studies describing how FAIR competences are being addressed through education and training programmes. The good practices offer examples of successful integration of Research Data Management (RDM) and FAIR data-related skills in university curricula and training to provide an up-to-date perspective on how these skills are being implemented by higher education institutions.
This report analyses the place of Open Science in the academic assessment approaches of universities across Europe.
This checklist is a guide for universities that wish to further develop their Open Access activities. In recent years, the scholarly publishing system has become much more complex and dynamic. The Open Access landscape has also changed dramatically. Universities, researchers, research funders and national consortia have all taken important steps in the transition towards Open Access, but the reality is still that full Open Access is far from being a ubiquitous reality.
This report presents the findings of the 2020-2021 EUA Open Science Survey and provides evidence-based recommendations for institutions, researchers, research funders and policy makers on the transition towards Open Science.
This report and the accompanying online repository bring together and analyse case studies in responsible academic career assessment. Gathered by EUA, together with the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) and Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) Europe, the case studies serve as a source of inspiration for universities and other actors looking to improve their academic career assessment practices.
The process to renew the European Research Area (ERA) is gathering pace and is set to continue in the coming weeks, months and years. Building on previous policy positions, this policy input further expands EUA’s views on the new ERA and focuses on the topics that are most important to universities.
