Ola Berge, Ministry of Education and Research

The ministry of Education and Research has appointed the coordination of the national participation and activities for the EOSC to the Norwegian Research Council. Norway has the National strategy on access to and sharing of research data in place. In the National Goals and Guidelines for Open Access to Research Articles (August 2017), the government’s goal is that all publicly funded Norwegian research articles should be made openly available by 2024, and the government has established guidelines and measures for open access to research articles. All Norwegian universities and most research performing university colleges have Open Access policies in place. In general, policies are focused on self-archiving and depositing publications in institutional repositories.
