International Collaboration

Last updated 10.5.2023

Open science is international. Promoting open science is best achieved through international collaboration. Open Science Coordination in Finland participates actively in many open science networks in Europe and globally. Our key international open science activities are currently:

Council of National Open Science Coordination (CoNOSC)

Council of National Open Science Coordination (CoNOSC) was founded in 2019 to promote open science coordination at national level. The objectives and organizational principles of CoNOSC include: helping countries to create, update and coordinate their national open science policies and activities, bringing together individuals and organisations coordinating open science at national level and providing a forum for in depth discussions on opportunities and challenges in coordinating national activities and policies which reflect and incorporate international open science progress. 

European Open Science Cloud (EOSC)

European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is one of the new partnerships supported by the European Commission and the Member States. It aims to realise a web of FAIR data and related services and provides a virtual environment with access to various services supporting open science and the management of the research data lifecycle, from sharing to processing and preserving data. The objective of EOSC is to give the European Union a global lead in research data management and ensure that European scientists reap the full benefits of data-driven science.

Resposible Open Science in Europe (ROSiE)

ROSiE (Responsible Open Science in Europe) is a three-year project (2021-2024) funded by HORIZON2020. Its mission is to co-create with all related stakeholders novel practical tools to foster a responsible open science and citizen science. ROSiE aims to provide customized solutions through an interdisciplinary knowledge hub bound to actively pursuing open approaches in science and research, while complying with relevant legal frameworks and ethical standards.
