This grant marks one of the initial awards by Open Science NL, established in March 2023 as part of the Nederlandse Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek (NWO). OSCM, an inter-faculty group that promotes Open Science all throughout Maastricht University (UM), plans to utilise the grant in collaboration with the University Library to deepen and strengthen its activities within UM. The grant provides funding for three years. The OSCM team will meet in February to kick-off the plans.

Curious about how Open Science can benefit your research endeavours?

Open Science – it’s basically a matter of doing it. It can be applied in all research phases (e.g. open pre-registration in the preparatory phase, applying citizen science in data collection, publishing open access after the research is completed).

Researchers who want some help on how to apply Open Science practices can contact advisers within their faculty via the following portals:

  • Research Data Management portal
    The Research Data Management portal supports UM researchers making their data FAIR.
  • Open Access portal
    You can find all UM information on Open Access publishing and sharing of research output through this portal provided by the University Library
  • Open Educational Resources page
    UM overview page on Open Educational Resources (OER), educational, learning, and research materials that can be used, created, and reused.
