Recognition & Rewarding

A factor that should not be underestimated in the transition to Open Science is the parallel transition to a new way of recognition and rewarding in science, as expressed in the recent position paper "Room for everyone's talent". The remuneration and promotion policy of knowledge institutions must vigorously reward open science initiatives in order to make these initiatives mainstream. From 2021 onwards, open science will be an integral part of the Strategic Evaluation Protocol for the evaluation of research groups at knowledge institutions.
