The research landscape is complex, and different actors have different options to help with a systemic move towards open science.
- fund research (e.g. researchers, research institutions, research infrastructure)
- assess research and its societal impact
- administrate financial, legal, ethical and other aspects of research
- help communicate research
- do many other things
In this thread, I would like us to explore which options research funders have to encourage open science in-house as well as in the communities and other stakeholders they interact with.
If you have multiple ideas for concrete actions, I suggest to post them as separate answers (rather than as one monolithic answer), so as to facilitate the discussion and refinement of your ideas.
