Groups audience: 

Dear all,
We are glad to share with you the news of the official launch of Ireland’s National Framework on the Transition to an Open Research Environment.
The National Framework is the culmination of the hard work and collaboration of all members of the National Open Research Forum (NORF) including the National Library of Ireland, the RDA Ireland coordinating organisation. NLI and RDA Ireland are both part of the initial group of organisations endorsing the plan.
The Framework comes as a clear statement of intent from across the entire research community in Ireland and was developed as the first step in a process to create a National Action Plan for the transition to an open research environment in Ireland.
The principles of the National Framework support access to research funded by the Irish Government. They focus on the free flow of information across national and international research communities, contributing to research-enabled teaching and learning; citizen science; open innovation; and greater transparency, accountability, and public awareness of the results of publicly funded research.
Established in 2017, the National Open Research Forum brings together a diverse range of views and backgrounds from across the Irish research community, providing a space to think about and design how the Irish research system should work in the future.

Many thanks,
on behalf of the RDA Ireland team
