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.
EUA actively supports universities in the transition to Open Science and is pleased to see progress being made at the European level to foster the emergence and sustain the impact of Open Science policies and practices. As such, this position outlines the Association’s input on the conclusions’ three key action areas covering the need to promote a renewed approach to research assessment, regulatory frameworks enabling Open Access and multilingualism as a key tool to increase the dissemination and impact of research outputs.
EUA is part of the initiative to reform research assessment. Please find more information on the official website of the Coalition for Advancing Research Assessment (CoARA), here.
