The Dutch Research Council (NWO) launches Open Science Fund
The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has introduced a new funding instrument to stimulate Open Science. Eligible initiatives are in the broad field of Open Science; ways to publish more open access, to unlock and share data, or to bring about a cultural change within the organization to Open Science.
With the Open Science Fund, NWO explicitly aims to recognise and reward open research practices. One million was made available in the first round. Researchers can apply for a maximum of 50.000 euros per project.
