The European and international college
The international context of open science evolves extremely rapidly, especially in Europe where this theme is strongly driven by the European Commission and the Council of Europe but also worldwide with the UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science adopted in November 2021. Open science policies are also developed and implemented within the governance of consortia, associations and international foundations that are involved at diverse and sometimes very technical levels of the scientific information ecosystem.
French actors take an active part in this European and international open science landscape. The role of the Committee for Open Science’s European and International College is to implement actions to strengthen and coordinate this participation so that the initiatives and positions broadly shared within the French scientific community are effectively transferred to the international scene. It specifically puts forwards technical summary reports and strategic notes integrating the main international initiatives and proposes initiatives aimed at increasing the visibility and effectiveness of French policies outside France.
