This webinar series is part of FOSTER and FOSTER+ efforts to build capacity among Horizon 2020 National Contact Points to support applicants on Open Science across all Societal Challenges. The on-demand training, and the topics and content are prioritized by members of the Net4Mobility Network and open to all NCP Networks.

RATIONALE: Between 2014-2017, FOSTER+ Consortium experimented with integrating Open Science in all 3 parts of MSCA (IF and ITN) proposals as a tool for (1) rigorous and reproducible methods, (2) re-use of results, and (3) improving the societal impact of research, as well as optimising career impact for the MSCA fellows. Our approach on Winning Horizon 2020 with Open Science now offers a growing body of evidence that Open Science can add a competitive advantage to proposals.

EC Working Group on Education and Skills also recommends in June 2017: - "In the case of (Early Career Researchers), it should be mandatory for universities and research organisations to offer these as part of their training" - "an action should be developed for Open Science placements for ECRs, either within or separate from the Marie Skłowodska Curie actions" - "Institutions should lastly recognise and reward Open Science training and Open Science track record in the research and career evaluations of researchers."

OBJECTIVES for the Webinar Series: The series content is determined by the NCPs themselves,as to best fit their current awareness and needs. The ultimate goal is to build capacity among NCPs to advise MSCA applicants on making Open Science part of the standard research method design and research process. Webinars will be recorded, and trainers selected from the FOSTER+ Partnership and the community of practioners, based on selected topics. To prioritise which topics Net4Mobility NCPs should be trained on, please select the Open Science topics here.
