MSCA4Ukraine: Open Science principles and practices


This webinar was organised as part of MSCA4Ukraine, an EU-funded fellowship programme for displaced researchers from Ukraine. It addressed open science principles and practices in the EU and how open science can contribute to the strengthening of the Ukrainian higher education and research sector. Open science is defined by the EU’s Research Executive Agency as “an approach to research based on open cooperative work – that emphasizes the sharing of knowledge, results and tools as early and widely as possible.” It has the potential to increase the quality and efficiency of research and accelerate the advancement of knowledge and innovation by sharing results, making them more reusable and improving their reproducibility. This webinar offered an opportunity for researchers from Ukraine to learn more about open science practices, how to publish on the open access publishing platform developed by the European Commission and how open science can be used to contribute to the reconstruction of Ukraine’s higher education sector.

The webinar covered:

  • Overview of open science in the EU and guide to the Open Research Europe platform-Dr Victoria Tsoukala, Policy Officer-Open Science, European Commission. 20231025_MSCA4Ukraine_Open Science_Presentation 1 & 2
