Implementing good research data management practices and Open Science guidelines requires effort at grass-roots, engaging researchers and research performing organisations but also at national level, policy makers working with funders and key organisations informing these policies.
To better understand the context and developments in Ireland, we have reached out to a series of organisations that have established themselves as drivers for the research data management, Open Science and Open Access movements. They have talked to us about the work at their own organisational levels, the challenges faced and how practical implementations were made possible. They shared lessons learned and have also helped us to gain a wider perspective on how the Irish contributions fit in the bigger picture at European and international levels.
Our first three spotlight interviews were conducted with Dr. Patricia Clarke from the Health Research Board Ireland (HRB), Dr. Marion Boland from Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) and Andrew Simpson from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI).
