  • To discuss preliminary results of the survey addressing awareness of Open Science activities and existing & expected reward systems in research assessment, in particular for sharing activities, in different contexts.

  • To fuel the discussion conducted as part of the EC’s Coalition on reforming research assessment.

  • To help feed future SHARC recommendations.

Collaborative session notes:

  • Introduction to the RDA-SHARC group

  • Introduction to the survey

The RDA-SHARC interest group is an interdisciplinary group set up to unpack and improve crediting and rewarding mechanisms in the data/resource sharing process. The main goals are to foster the implementation of rewarding paths and encourage the adoption of data sharing activities-related criteria in the research evaluation process at the institutional, national and European/international levels.
