The EUA Council adopted on 27 October a political statement on Open Science. The document includes key messages from the university sector addressed to EU institutions and national governments, with a view to contribute to the faster development of an open scholarly knowledge exchange system.

The statement focuses particularly on prioritising open access to research publications and to research data, and in creating adequate framework conditions for the re-use of research outcomes produced as a result of publicly funded research. The messages addressed to EU institutions and national governments cover different areas, including infrastructure, skills and capacity building, researchers’ engagement with open access, research assessment approaches and legislative developments that are likely to have a profound impact in research activities in the next years.
