The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has introduced a new funding instrument to stimulate Open Science. Eligible initiatives are in the broad field of Open Science; ways to publish more open access, to unlock and share data, or to bring about a cultural change within the organization to Open Science.
With the Open Science Fund, NWO explicitly aims to recognize and reward open research practices. 1 million was made available in the first round. Researchers can apply for a maximum of 50.000 euros per project.
