Hungary on the move

In October 2019, the National Office for Research Development and Innovation announced the latest Frontline Research Excellence Program. "The programme follows a funding model that supports frontline discovery research while offering grant opportunities to internationally top-performing researchers for implementing their projects in a Hungarian host institution in connection with European Research Council (ERC) calls. This way, the Frontline programme enhances Hungary's efforts to become a regional hub for research, development and innovation."One of the major changes to the new founding scheme is that the project description includes a proposal for research data management. This was the first time that Hungarian decision-makers had a proposal on how researchers should handle their research data.

The hard work of OpenAIRE NOADs in Hungary became a success and a great opportunity for open science advocates as it is the first step towards a national policy that can drive the spread of open science across the country.

Once application has been accepted, the applicant must submit a data management plan covering the following main topics:

  • How data will be created?
  • The amount of data
  • Ethics and legal compliance
  • Long term preservation
  • Data sharing

A working group was set up to assist the work of the research support organization, their task will be to make recommendations that meet the expectations of different research areas, and also adapt to international trends.

Currently three institutions are involved in the work: Library and Information Center of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (Andras Holl), University of Pécs University Library and Center for Learning (Peter Kokay), University of Debrecen University and National Library (Adam Szaldobagyi as OpenAIRE RDM working group member). We hope to see more members to join the working group soon, so we can look at issues from multiple aspects.
