Building on the French Act for a Digital Republic which prompts government institutions to make their data automatically available and reusable at no charge, the French government recently decided to further its action for scientific data sharing in the context of two international endeavours:

  • By joining the GO FAIR initiative as a founding member [1]http://www.enseignementsup-recherche.gouv.fr/cid124728/science-ouverte-la-france-rejoint-go-fair-en-tant-que-co-fondatrice.html
  • By committing itself to build an Open Science ecosystem as part of its Open Government Action Plan 2018-2020 [2]https://gouvernement-ouvert.etalab.gouv.fr/pgo-concertation/topic/5a1bfc1b498edd6b29cb10d4

The second commitment of the national plan for open science is an invitation to “structure and, as far as possible, make research data available to all as Open Data”.

Above and beyond these political initiatives, making scientific data [3]“Data“ being understood in its broadest meaning, i.e. raw data, code, workflows become F.A.I.R. [4]https://www.nature.com/articles/sdata201618 (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) means that institutions take on the challenges and identify appropriate ways and means that make researchers and research communities seize the opportunities of “data-driven” science.

There is a need for action in institution policies, infrastructure development for data management, sharing and analysis, and for research, IT, library staff training, i.e. for a cultural shift to sharing and collaborative practices, and to generating value from research results (open innovation). This can also mean pooled or at least concerted action.

There are at least two identified strands of work on data-related issues: the one undertaken by the “infranum” working group led by the MESRI/DGRI/SSRI and the RDA France chapter being run by the CNRS.

Director of the library at the Paris Observatory

Véronique Stoll is a conservateur en chef des bibliothèques (head library curator) and currently the director of the Paris Observatory Library where she is responsible for open science issues.

She worked in central administration at the Ministry of Higher Education and Research before working for about ten years at the Ministry of Defence and then joining the Paris Observatory.

Her current work mainly focuses on support for research and its promotion and dissemination (bibliometrics, open access to publications, research data) both at the institutional level and at the National Institute for Earth Sciences and Astronomy (INSU). She actively takes part in various groups and networks involved in open science (Research Data Alliance, universe science observatories, etc.).

Pierre-Yves Arnould is in charge of information systems at the Lorraine Earth and Environment Observatory (OSU OTELo). This observatory brings together research units in the field of geosciences and the environment in the Lorraine region.

He worked for over ten years on the security and technical development of scientific and technical information management systems at the Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (Inist-CNRS) before joining a research unit to contribute his skills in digital services and help raise awareness of and train scientific teams in open science, particularly open data. He is the initiator and co-designer of OTELo’s institutional Research Data Repository, ORDaR.

Pierre-Yves Arnould played an active role in the integration of open science into his observatory’s five-year plan.

He is a member of the operational committee on open science at the Université de Lorraine and has contributed his expertise to numerous open science working groups.
