Charter and Roadmap

A CHarter for Open Science

With the Open Science Charter, the University is committed to the sharing of scientific knowledge. The Charter sets out the principles that the University of Geneva intends to promote in order to encourage free access to the data and to the research results carried out by its sudents and staff. The implementation of these principles is presented in the roadmap, which is part of the Digital Strategy of the University of Geneva and will be regularly updated by the Rectorate.

Open Science Charter for the University of Geneva

a roadmap to support and accompany change

The Rectorate has adopted a roadmap that sets out the measures and projects to be put in place to ensure a sound governance of open science and the adoption of  teaching and research practices in line with open science practices  in the various scientific fields and disciplines. Based on ongoing discussions at the European and Swiss levels, it presents the framework conditions, tools and services to establish in order to respond to the challenges and opportunities of open science in a multidisciplinary university committed to academic freedom. The approach adopted considers the entire life cycle of scientific research, from the production or collection of research data to the evaluation of research, including data management, publication of results and knowledge sharing. Emphasis is thus placed on research data management as a mean to promote collaboration and creation of knowledge (Open Research Data), free access to scientific publications (Open Access) and wide access to educational resources for students (Open Education Resources).

The roadmap is available in french only.
