The European Commission is establishing a Commission Expert Group to provide advice about the development and implementation of open science policy in Europe. A call for expressions of interest has been launched to select members of the High-Level Advisory Group "Open Science Policy Platform"(OSPP). The group will consist of 20-30 high-level representatives of the broad constituency of European (open) science stakeholders.

The mandate of the Open Science Policy Platform is to:

  1. advise the Commission on how to further develop and practically implement open science policy, in line with the priority of Commissioner Moedas to radically improve the quality and impact of European science;
  2. function as a dynamic, stakeholder-driven mechanism for bringing up and addressing issues of concern for the European science and research community and its representative organisations, following five broad lines for actions which are presented in the draft European Open Science Agenda  PDF icon 124 KB ;
