OPUS project – Open and Universal Science

The OPUS project is an EU-funded project implemented by an eighteen-organisations consortium led by The Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands (PLOCAN). The main goal is to develop coordination and support measures to reform the assessment of research(ers), along with the following:

  • Conduct a comprehensive state-of-the-art on existing literature and initiatives for Open Science
  • Develop a comprehensive set of interventions to implement Open Science at RPOs and RFOs
  • Develop realistic indicators and metrics to monitor and drive Open Science at RPOs and RFOs
  • Test the interventions and indicators and metrics via action plans in pilots at RPOs and RFOs
  • Utilise a stakeholder-driven feedback loop to develop, monitor, refine, and validate actions
  • Synthesise outcomes into policy briefs and a revised OS-CAM2 for research(er) assessment

OPUS will develop a set of interventions for Open Science toward a system that incentivises and rewards researchers to take up practices of providing open access to research outputs, early and open sharing of research, participation in open peer-review, measures to ensure reproducibility of results, and involving all stakeholders in co-creation.

ICoRSA is the lead partner for dissemination, coordination and exploitation.
