Achieving solid and demonstrable scientific quality implies INBO will eventually operate as much as possible in accordance with the methods of open and reproducible research - in short, Open Science.
In order to operationalise Open Science at INBO, generic Open Science Targets (OSTs) will be drawn up for projects. This is an ideal picture of how projects can best be implemented in the long term. Progress has already been made in the past.
The OSTs deal with scientific characteristics of projects (content-related / technical). Aspects of process control (e.g. planning, project evaluation, personnel evaluation) fall outside the scope.
The project aims at a step-by-step implementation of the Open Science Targets in project work across (EV)INBO as a whole. Both the scientific support and the research teams therefore have coordinated roles to play in this respect.
