SCOSS seeking new potential candidates for 3rd funding cycle

18th February 2020News, Open Access, Open Data, Open Science

Two years into helping secure vital, non-commercial services within the Open Science community; the Global Sustainability Coalition for Open Science Services (SCOSS) is searching for new potential candidates to help fund. SCOSS is requesting that the international community help identify non-profit services that help comprise essential Open Access or Open Science infrastructure, are of international significance and lack financial sustainability.

Potential candidates interested in pursuing funding must fill out the SCOSS Expression of Interest by 5 p.m. CET, 11 March. 

The SCOSS board is seeking to identify a field of potential candidates to vet; among the basic qualifications: eligible services must have a non-profit status in the country in which they are based and/or be affiliated with or owned by a research or educational institution. All Expressions of Interest will be evaluated by the Board and those organisations that meet these basic requirements while also making a clear, strong case for community support will be invited to apply formally later in 2020.
