Aligning the development of Open Science in Serbia with European initiatives

Serbia-picture-2 Team for Open Science in Serbia (TONuS) officially start working

Open science has become a reality and a necessity for all disciplines in the Serbian research community. By adopting the Open Science Platform (2018) and the Law on Science and Research (2019), the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development showed its commitment to implement the principles of Open Science in Serbia. Over the past two years, it has been possible to identify a number of actions and activities that could lead to an effective implementation of OS principles in Serbia (e.g. APC discounts, incentives for FAIR data practices, OS-related education and training at all levels, the inclusion of local initiatives and services in the EOSC, etc.).

To address these issues, the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development has established the Team for Open Science in Serbia (TONuS). The first meeting of the team was held on 16 January 2020.

Along with the Secretary of State and all Assistant Ministers responsible for science, TONuS includes a broad group of experts in this field. The meeting room was small (again:) since 29 people participate: 6 decision-makers, 17 researchers, 6 librarians and research-support stuffs.

The task of TONuS is to identify and define all improvements, measures and regulations related to Open Science, and to ensure that they are implemented in the local research community as efficiently as possible.
