The consortium of CHIST-ERA aims at launching a joint funding activity to support the development of Open Science. If the action is confirmed, it will take the form of a call for European projects (at least three partners from three different countries).

The so-named CHIST-ERA Call Open Research Data, to be published Mid-2022, will target projects in the following topic:

Open & Re-usable Research Data & Software (ORD)

The draft topic description below gives an overview of the main items that will form the scope of the call:

  1. Create, enrich or prepare ‘reference data sets’. The objective is to favour the availability and reuse of complex datasets (consisting of disparate datasets, multiple formats, variety and heterogeneity of the data).
  2. ‘Editorialization’ of data: Reduce the distance between the producer of the data and the expected or even unexpected reuser of the data. The objective is to promote reuse for scientific, educational, economic or even journalistic purposes.
  3. Processes and tools to describe, share, reference and archive software source code, in particular with the goal to enhance reproducibility of research results analysed or obtained by these softwares.

Anticipated call deadline

Fall 2022
