Open day for the launch of the OSCARS Open Call for Open Science Projects

We are pleased to invite you to join us for an open day dedicated to the launch of the OSCARS project Open Call for Open Science projects, which will take place online, on Friday, 15 March 2024.
The call, which is the first of two calls foreseen in the frame of the project (total worth ~16 million EUR), aims to support research communities from any scientific domain to take up open science and foster the involvement of scientists in EOSC.

Researchers from all scientific disciplines are welcome to apply with proposals for the development of new, innovative Open Science projects or services, that together will drive the uptake of FAIR-data-intensive research throughout the European Research Area (ERA).
Projects – which will be funded with a lump sum between 100,000 and 250,000 EUR – can be proposed in the field of any of the Science Clusters and beyond by any researcher or group of researchers.

By the end of the project, it is expected that a series of valuable scientific demonstrators will be available, leading to an increased uptake of Open Science by researchers and to promote cross-border and cross-domain cooperation in the long run.

During the event, participants will learn more about the scope and content of the call, and will be welcome to raise any question about the call and the application process.



  • To learn about OSCARS and the opportunity given by the 1st OSCARS Open Call for Open Science projects, which will be launched on March 15th, 2024.
  • To ask any question related to the call and get useful answers to increase the chances of submitting a successful proposal.


  • Researchers from all scientific disciplines
  • Data scientists
  • Members of research infrastructures


OSCARS is a four-year EU-funded project that will foster the uptake of Open Science in Europe by consolidating the achievements of world-class European research infrastructures in the ESFRI roadmap and beyond into lasting interdisciplinary FAIR data services and working practices. The project will strengthen the role of the Science Clusters in the ERA by developing domain-based Competence Centres and by fostering the implementation of Open Science projects funded through a cascading grant mechanism.
