    Dear IG Members,
    We are excited to invite you to collaborate with us on a study that aims to develop a shared framework for the recognition of competences required for Open Science practitioners. As part of the Skills4EOSC project, we have published the first draft of Open Science Career Profiles and MVS, which describes the essential skills and concepts required to deliver Open Science (OS) outcomes for communities and organizations.
    We are seeking your comments and insights on how well the format meets its purpose by responding to an online questionnaire. The paper ‘1st Draft of Open Science Career Profiles and MVS’ provides MVS for a research-related role, identifying its OS mission, the typical activities it undertakes in delivering OS outcomes, and the essential skills and competences required for this. By profiling each role, an MVS will help trainers and those who train them to identify from relevant competence frameworks and skills resources the main ingredients of courses and curricula they may need for building capacity in those roles.
    Your feedback is essential to us, and we encourage you to provide comments on the example MVS for Policymakers and on roles that should be treated as priorities for developing further MVS. We will consider all comments before deciding on the priorities.
    To participate, please fill out the online questionnaire provided in the link below, 31st of March. We appreciate your time and efforts in contributing to this project.
    Thank you for considering our invitation to collaborate, and we look forward to your feedback.
    Have a good weekend!
    Best regards,
