OPENing UP new methods,indicators and tools for peer review, impact measurement and dissemination of research results - OpenUP
In this project PPMI will coordinate and lead a team of 9 organisations from Austria, Germany, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands and Switzerland in a Horizon2020 funded project OpenUp (OPENing UP new methods, indicators and tools for peer review, impact measurement and dissemination of research results).
This project addresses key aspects and challenges of the currently transforming science landscape and aspires to come up with a cohesive framework for the review-disseminate-assess phases of the research life cycle that is fit to support and promote Open Science. Its main objectives are to:
- identify and determine ground-breaking mechanisms, processes and tools for peer-review for all types of research results (publications, data, software),
- explore, identify and classify innovative dissemination mechanisms with an outreach aim towards businesses and industry, education, and society as a whole,
- analyze a set of novel indicators that assess the impact of research results and correlate them of channels of dissemination.
The final outcome of the project will be a set of concrete, practical, validated policy recommendations & guidelines for national and European stakeholders, including EU institutions, a valuable tool in advancing a more open and gender-sensitive science system.
