We are pleased to announce that the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre has published the report “Analysis of Emerging Reputation and Funding Mechanisms in the Context of Open Science 2.0”. This report covers the outcomes of two studies funded by JRC IPTS to explore emerging drivers for Open Science 2.0.

The second study, conducted by Open Evidence, presents an overview of alternative funding mechanisms in real-life, with the aim to gather the widest set of examples of alternative funding mechanisms for scientific research in order to better define their nature and scope. Open Evidence has identified short cases studies, aimed at better understanding how alternative funding mechanisms work, and what are the implications for researchers, research institutions and EU policy.
