Objectives of the project are:

  • curricula

    Map career profiles related to Open Science and define, through co-creation the “Minimum Viable Skillset” (MVS) for each of them; create a shared framework for the recognition of competencies acquired by university students, trainers and new professionals as a part of an academic path or a lifelong learning process.

  • certificate

    Define a methodology and a Quality Assurance process to ensure the quality and relevance of OS learning materials and the management of their life-cycle, thus enhancing their re-usability.

  • training

    Offer training on OS and the usage of data in evidence-based policy for civil servants and policymakers and empower CCs, researchers and “honest brokers” through the offering of resources to carry out training for this target.

  • essentials

    Define “OS and data-intensive science essentials” for inclusion in generic undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD curricula as a key skill that anyone doing research is expected to acquire.

  • collaboration

    Design and implement a collaboration model between national and regional CCs and international Research Infrastructures and communities to provide specialised OS competencies targeting the needs of researchers and thematic RI professionals.

  • learning

    Support lifelong learning through professional networks as an enabling environment to discuss, cocreate and exchange best practices and solutions among OS professionals and researchers.

  • coordination

    Coordinate national, regional and thematic Competence Centres on OS and EOSC in Europe and leverage their expertise to create a widespread user support network and an environment that fosters and harmonises training and skills activities.

  • strategy

    Create and implement a strategy for engaging with relevant stakeholders to co-create and promote the project outputs (Curricula, shared certification and QA frameworks, human networks), building partnerships to embed project activities and results among the broadest network of stakeholders.

  • synergies

    Establish synergies with key actors within the Member States and in the EOSC arena, and with human capital and training programmes at the national, regional and European levels to maximise the impact of the project activities and results and pave the way for their long-term sustainability.
