GraspOS: Next Generation Research Assessment to Promote Open Science

Type of project: European  |  Start date: 01/01/2023  |  End date: 31/12/2025

GraspOS aims to build and operate a data infrastructure to support the policy reforms and pave the way towards a responsible research assessment system that embeds Open Science (OS) practices and accelerates its adoption in Europe.

GraspOS will focus on extending the EOSC ecosystem with tools and services that will facilitate monitoring the use and uptake of various types of research services and outputs (publications, datasets, software) and will catalyse the implementation of policy-level rewards to foster OS practices.

These tools and services will build upon multiple sources of metric data (e.g., OpenCitations, Scholexplorer), including capabilities offered by the EOSC Core, that will be federated in the context of the project, and will take into consideration both contemporary guidelines for Responsible Research Assessment (RRA), like those provided by initiatives like DORA and the Leiden Manifesto, and the suggestions from a diversity of relevant stakeholders.

GraspOS will also incorporate piloting activities to co-design, showcase, validate and evaluate GraspOS key results, considering domain-specific aspects and different levels of OS-aware RRA, such as the researcher (individual/group), institution and national level.
