EOSC Steering Board representatives
In Open Science in Estonia, the horizontal value passes through the research system and practice is taken into account, among other things, in scientific communication, research results evaluation, funding decisions, research career development and scientific information access. The general principle is that Open Science makes research results for society accessible to businesses and researchers making research more transparent and efficient.
The Estonian Research, Development, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship Development Plan 2021–2035 (TAIE) plan has two goals related to Open Science:
- Developing principles for ensuring open science and high-performance computing power and action plan, securing the necessary repositories and services
- Supporting the implementation of the Open Science principles to improve research performance and the availability and use of data by researchers, businesses and citizens
There are several Estonian universities and organisations participating in EOSC projects and development, such as in EOSC Nordic.
Estonian Scientific Computing Infrastructure (ETAIS)
The main purpose of the EOSC national structure, ETAIS, in Estonia is to coordinate EOSC related activity in Estonia and to facilitate collaboration and information exchange on EOSC related matters. Its main priorities are:
- Disseminating and promoting EOSC at national level
- Offering a channel to connect the national stakeholders with the EOSC governance
- Coordinating EOSC activities at national level

A framework for Estonian open science is presently being prepared as one of the annexes to the Estonian Research, Development, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship Development Plan 2021–2035 (TAIE). This framework is based on the recommendations of the Open Science Expert Group established by the Estonian Research Council in 2016 and two studies conducted within the framework of the RITA program and the recommendations of the European Commission and the OECD. University research libraries and the DataCite Estonia Consortium are actively involved in introducing the principles of open science in Estonia.
