EOSC and the future of Research & Innovation in Europe
As defined by the European Commission, Open Science consists of 8 pillars of understanding, amongst which are FAIR data and the European Open Science Cloud. Drawing on the results of the EC-funded LEARN project, this paper will look at the challenges which research data management brings to the research institution in an Open Science landscape where research data are at least as equally valued as publications. How, in Rewards systems, can FAIR and/or Open research data be valued as a route to reward and promotion? The paper will look at how these concepts have been embodied into the new UCL Academic Promotions Framework. In terms of skills development, what needs to happen to equip researchers (especially early career researchers) with the knowledge they need to work in a data-intensive environment? A recent European report has shown that, for the EU, the cost of not using FAIR data will be 10.2 bn euros a year. A second report promotes policy recommendations to make the FAIR data model sustainable. The paper will conclude by looking at the research infrastructure being put in place by UCL (University College London) to deliver on the research data agenda by studying in detail the launch of its new research data repository, which takes Open and FAIR data as the default.

Education as a pillar of Open Science
Education does not feature as one of the 8 pillars of Open Science, as defined by the European Commission, and this is a problem when considering the full range of activities which Open Science should embrace. There are also challenges in the UK in introducing the ‘Open’ concept to educational materials as these, unlike research outputs, do not fall under the Open Access requirements of the REF (Research Excellence Framework) or the TEF (Teaching Excellence Framework). UCL (University College London) has embraced the concept of research-based education and ‘Open’ approaches are helping to support this agenda. This paper will look at an initial UCL Scoping Study for Open Education (2016) and the current version of the UCL Open Education Roadmap (2017). The second part of the paper will look at the work of UCL Press, the UK’s first fully Open Access University Press, in delivering Open Educational outputs. It will start with the traditional textbook approach and then look at the development of the Press’s own textbook platform based on the BOOC (Books as Open Online Content). The paper will conclude by summarizing the challenges and benefits of Open Educational Resources as part of the Open Science agenda.

JDI Open - Data sharing
JDI Open is an open science journal-club & peer-mentoring group at the UCL Jill Dando Institute of Security and Crime Science. Our bi-weekly seminars provide the opportunity for students and staff at the department to learn about open science and discuss ideas to implement open science practices in their research. We recorded our session on data sharing for those who couldn't make it.
