Funders are well positioned to shift the incentives for open science inherent in grant application processes and improve the way research is evaluated. Institutions can change the status quo by promoting and rewarding researchers'careers, and collaborating with research libraries in contributing to development of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) infrastructure, tools and relevant skills.
This document elaborates on the outcome of the workshop "Research Institutions and Libraries and the role of Funders in the European Open Science Cloud" held at the LIBER 2018 Conference in Lille, France. It sets a vision in which open science is the norm, and all funding bodies as well as institutions and researchers recognise the benefit of open science and embed best open science practice into their processes.
