Open Consultation for Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda
The Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) provides general guidelines to help develop the work programmes for EOSC in Horizon Europe. The SRIA is open for public consultationuntil 31 August 2020, involving stakeholders from inside and outside the EOSC Community. Research infrastructures, universities, researchers, industry, national and international initiatives, policymakers, citizen scientists are all invited to take part in this collective effort across countries and disciplines.
The consultation takes the form of an online questionnaire where respondents can give their views on topics such as EOSC's guiding principles, action areas and priorities. This includes information relating to rewarding Open Science practices and skills; standard, tools and services to find, access and reuse results; and shared and federated infrastructures to enable open sharing of scientific results.
Before completing the consultation questionnaire, respondents are advised to first read the SRIA consultation document which sets out a general framework and provides key information.
