Research Policy Monitoring in the Era of Open Science and Big Data: the what (indicators) and the how (infrastructures)

join the forum

A two day workshop exploring mechanisms for research policy monitoring and indicators: discussing the what ‘indicators’ and the how: infrastructure. This workshop is in collaboration with Data4Impact, with support of Science Europe.

Introduction

Research funders across Europe are increasingly mandating Open Science practices for funded research outputs to support open and free access to valuable elements of the scholarly communication life-cycle. From OA to publications and the recent PlanS developments, to the promotion and uptake of coordinated RDM practices, to the more advanced research assessment exercises to understand innovation and societal impact, there is a need for monitoring of research output.

National and EU e-Infrastructures respond to these needs by embedding and developing monitoring tools to provide evidence-based data on policy uptake, costs, and research impact, while at the same time promoting interoperability of information outputs, shareable across networks.

This two-day workshop, co-organised by OpenAIRE and Data4Impact, with support of Science Europe, will explore mechanisms for research policy monitoring and indicators, and how to link these to infrastructure and services. The first day will focus on open science indicators as these emerge from national and EU initiatives, while the second will be a forward thinking exploration for more advanced aspects of indicators for innovation and societal impact.

Other elements addressed in this two-day workshop:

  • Existing ways of monitoring for Open Science – the what and the how
  • Collaboration aspects to achieve a seamless monitoring landscape via open infrastructures
  • Data driven techniques for research assessment and their links to open data
