Survey of funders’ and institutions’ open research priorities

Dear all,
I hope you are keeping well. With apologies for cross-posting, I thought this survey would be of interest to many members of the data policy IG.
At PLOS we are investigating how well funders' and institutions’ needs are met for evaluating how researchers are sharing research data and code. To assist in this activity, I’d be very grateful if members of this IG who represent funders or institutions could take about 10 minutes to complete this survey.
