The European project Skills4EOSC (Skills for the European Open Science commons: creating a training ecosystem for Open and FAIR science), for the creation of a pan-European network of competence centres to disseminate a real culture of open science, through the development of methodologies, activities and training resources to accelerate the updating of European researchers and professionals in the management of scientific data, has started.
The project, funded under the Horizon Europe framework programme, began on 1 September and will run for three years. Led by GARR, the consortium brings together 44 partners, representing the main experiences of national, regional, institutional and thematic competence centres for open science and scientific data management in 18 European countries (Italy, the Netherlands, France, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, Macedonia, Germany, Belgium, Austria, Poland, Sweden, Estonia, and Spain). The aim is to unify the current training landscape into a common and reliable ecosystem.
