Call for OS Projects and Services
Deadline: 15/05/2024

DiPText-KC is pleased to announce the OSCARS 1st Open Call for Open Science Projects and Services, which was launched on Friday 15 March 2024 at 15:00 CET and will be closed on Wednesday 15 May 2024 at 17:00 CET.

OSCARS – Open Science Cluster Action for Research & Society is a four-year project funded by the European Commission within the Horizon Europe Programme and brings together world-class European Research Infrastructures in the ESFRI Roadmap and beyond with the ultimate goal of fostering the uptake of Open Science in Europe across scientific disciplines and communities.

OSCARS aims to further consolidate past achievements of the Science Clusters into lasting interdisciplinary FAIR data services and working practices.

Through an open call mechanism for financial support to third parties, a broad range of research communities will be involved for the development of new and innovative Open Science projects that will drive the uptake of FAIR-data-intensive research throughout the European Research Area (ERA).

The topics and priorities of the OSCARS Open Calls, which will run in two cycles (on March 2024 and November 2024) with a total allocation of about 16 million Euros, are defined by the OSCARS Consortium.

Both cycles of Open Calls will be vouched by the OSCARS Consortium and, in particular, by the Science Cluster Steering Board (SCB), in terms of current priorities/expected technical content and allocated budget.

The OSCARS Consortium has already established a list of themes and types of projects expected to maximise the impact of the OSCARS action.
