Building on P-5 'Scientific information', the follow-up programme 'Open Science' will lay the foundations to enable Swiss higher education institutions to reuse, disseminate and reproduce research data and methods electronically

based on the 'FAIR – Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable' principle. Through these efforts, the programme will support the academic community in implementing an Open Access policy and an ORD infrastructure in Switzerland.

This programme will be developed in two phases:

  • Phase A (Open Access, 2021-2024) with a budget of MCHF 11.8 and
  • Phase B (Open Research Data, 2022-2024) with an expected budget of MCHF 33.2.
