The Open Science Policy Platform (OSPP) was formed in 2016 with the objective to advise the European Commission and act as a consulting body for all European open science policy and the further development and practical implementation of the European open science policy agenda.
Our association has been represented from the start through Karel Luyben who is one of our Directors and also the Chair of our Task Force Open Science.
