OSCARS launches its 1st Open Call for Open Science projects and services

On March 15th, the Science Clusters launched the first OSCARS cascading-grant call for Open Science projects and services. Over 300 attendees across and beyond Europe joined the online launch event and had the opportunity to interact with the panelists via an open Q&A session. 

The OSCARS project operates as a cluster of the Science Clusters – ENVRI (environmental science), ESCAPE (astronomy and particle-nuclear physics), Life Science RI (life sciences), PaNOSC (photon and neutron science) and SSHOC (social science and humanities), which bring together over seventy world-class research infrastructures (RIs) from the ESFRI roadmap and beyond to work on FAIR data management and connecting their user communities to the EOSC.

OSCARS Open Calls have a total worth of ~16 million EUR. Each selected proposal will be funded with a lump sum between 100,000 and 250,000 € and have to be implemented in a period between 12 and 24 months.

The scientific community at large is invited to apply to the 1st Open Call before May 14th, 2024. A second call is expected to be opened in November 2024.
