Groups audience: 

Dear all,

- While waiting for its adaptation and (hopefully) eventual
endorsement/adoption by the General Secretariat for Research and Technology,

probably after the summer break.
- Recall that the "National Plan for Open Science" is the result of a
bottom-up effort, prepared as a collaborative initiative of eleven national
academic & research organizations and twenty-six research infrastructures &
civic initiatives. The Plan is a proposal for a series of goals,
commitments, policies and actions for the adoption of Open Science in Greece
and is intended to serve as a reference point and a springboard for national
policy makers towards the establishment of a national strategy for Open
Science, to assist national organizations in embracing Open Science
principles, and to ensure national alignment with the European Open Science
(EOSC) and Research Data Alliance (RDA). The Open Science Task Force members
will also be working towards the adoption of the plan in their
- Given the Covid-19 situation, we don't have any news on the next Open
Science Symposium. We are considering different options (physical, virtual,
hybrid), depending on the situation in early fall.
