“A change in research culture is needed to make sharing data a default rather than an exception”
Prof. Tuuli Toivonen
“Openness is everything, and its importance is increasing”
“Stop the anti-science of not sharing evidence”
“Data is the foundation on which we scientists base our claims and inferences about the world”
Much work is being done by European scholars to change the hearts and minds of their peers towards more Openness. As an international foundation, SPARC Europe is sharing the stories of a range of Europe’s academics in this European showcase.
Champions actively contribute to advocating and implementing new open scholarship principles and practices within their organisation’s research communities. Champions can be research administrators, rectors, senior researchers, PhD students or young researchers.
