The OPUS project – Open Universal Science – will develop coordination and support measures to reform the assessment of research and researchers towards a system that incentivises and rewards uptake of Open Science.

OPUS understands the term ‘Open Science’ to refer to practices providing early and open sharing of research, open access to research outputs and measures to ensure reproducibility of results. Open Science involves citizens, civil society and end-users in the co-creation of research content.

The project will commence on 1 September 2022, with an implementation period of 36 months.

OPUS involves 18 European partners and is coordinated by PLOCAN(Spain).

Objective of the project

OPUS will deliver a state-of-the-art of existing literature and interventions for Open Science. OPUS will develop indicators and metrics to monitor implementation of the interventions, focussing on incentives to reward researchers to practise Open Science. Open Science indicators and metrics will be tested in 5 pilot organisations and results translated into policy briefs and thematic workshops. OPUS will help to raise awareness, build trust, and drive the uptake of Open Science.

OPUS involves 18 European partners, coordinated by PLOCAN.
