EOSC Steering Board representatives
The Swedish Research Council has a government assignment to coordinate, follow-up and promote collaboration on the national work with open access to research data, which in August 2022 was extended to “coordinating and promoting the Swedish engagement in EOSC”. The National Library has the equivalent assignment on open access to scientific publications and was in August 2022 given the assignment to develop national guidelines on open science.
The National Library has the equivalent assignment on open access to scientific publications and was in August 2022 given the assignment to develop national guidelines on open science. Universities and Higher Education institutions have the assignment to continue to develop the work on open science. To support the implementation of open science and EOSC, the Association for Swedish Higher Education Institutions (SUHF) has produced a Roadmap for Open Science that provides recommendations and guidance for the implementation at the institutions. Several organisations and universities engage in the development of the EOSC through coordinated national activities, projects and as members of the EOSC Association.
National Reference Group for EOSC:
The National Reference Group for EOSC was established to support the Swedish Research Council in their role as the mandated organisation. Stakeholders engaged in the EOSC Association, including EOSC-A member organisations and universities represented through the Association of Swedish Higher Education Institutions (SUHF), are represented in the group. The aim of the National Reference Group for EOSC is to ensure through dialogue, convened and chaired by Swedish Research Group, that stakeholders’ perspectives are represented in the EOSC Partnership. In order to support the national objective of transitioning to Open Access to research data the National Reference Group for EOSC is integrated into a larger reference group for Open Access and EOSC.

The Swedish Government’s 2016 research policy bill set the goal for the transition to open access to research data to be fully implemented by 2026. The Swedish Research Council recommends that research data that is financed via public funds, and that applicable legislation allows to be published, should be published openly on the internet within a reasonable time after the research results have been published.
