Sergio Andreozzi has been nominated member of the European Open Science Policy Platform

The EGI Foundation is pleased to announce that our colleague Sergio Andreozzi, Strategy and Policy Manager, has been nominated member of the European Open Science Policy Platform established by the European Commission.

The Open Science Policy Platform is a High-Level Advisory Group that aims to:

  • advise the Commission on how to further develop and practically implement open science policy, in line with the priority of Commissioner Moedas to radically improve the quality and impact of European science;
  • function as a dynamic, stakeholder-driven mechanism for bringing up and addressing issues of concern for the European science and research community and its representative organisations, following five broad lines for actions which are presented in the European Open Science Agenda;
  • support policy formulation by helping to identify the issues to be addressed and providing recommendations on the policy actions required;
  • support policy implementation, contributing to reviewing best practices, drawing policy guidelines and encouraging their active uptake by stakeholders;
  • provide advice and recommendations on any cross-cutting issue affecting open science.

Sergio Andreozzi joins a group of high-level representatives of the broad constituency of European science stakeholders, including Steve Cotter, CEO of GÉANT; Natalia Manola, Managing Director of OpenAIRE and John Wood, Chair of RDA Europe.  Sergio comments on the nomination: “This is a great recognition of the work done so far with the EGI community and also a great opportunity to continue developing open science and ensure that it is supported by open infrastructures.” In announcing the composition of the OSPP, Commissioner Moedas also presented the new book “Open Innovation, Open Science, Open to the World – a vision for Europe” that is free to download.
