More and more funding bodies are supporting the adoption of Open Science principles. Among these is the European Research Council (ERC), an institution that has always been synonymous with the quality of research based on the excellence of candidates and no limitations on research topics and disciplines. And with a particular attention to Open Science practices, starting from the management and sharing of scientific data. We will talk about how ERC supports open science and what in practice is required from beneficiaries with Anna Pelagotti, policy expert at ERCEA, the Executive Agency of the European Research Council, Emma Lazzeri and Gina Pavone, of the ICDI Competence Center.
