The International Scientific Council met for the first time on May 23, which contributed to the formation of the CCSD’s new governance. It is composed of 11 French and international experts in the fields of Open Science, open archives, publishing and research data.

Four bodies make up the governance as approved by the Open Science Steering Committee in 2020: the Steering Committee, the Orientation Committee, the Partners’ Assembly (set up in July 2021) and – the last piece of the edifice – the International Scientific Council.

It brings together 11 experts in the fields of open science:

  • Bianca Amaro, Instituto Brasileiro de Informação em Ciência e Tecnologia (IBICT)
  • Rachel Bruce, Head of Open Science, UK Research and Innovation (UKRI)
  • Donatella Castelli, senior researcher, Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR)
  • Ingrid Dillo, Deputy Director, Data Archiving and Networked Service ( DANS)
  • Wolfram Horstmann, Library director, Univ. Göttingen
  • Irina Kuchma, Open Access programme manager, Electronic Information for Libraries (EIFL)
  • Vincent Larivière, Professor, Univ. Montréal
  • Florian Naudet, Researcher, Univ. Rennes 1
  • Johan Rooryck, Executive Director, Coalition S
  • Kathleen Shearer, Executive Director, COAR
  • Paul Thirion, Chief librarian, Univ. Liège

It is chaired by Vincent Larivière who will sit on the Steering Committee.

The experience and expertise of each member will enrich the reflections on the orientations and programmes carried out by the CCSD and will contribute to their international visibility. The Council’s missions are to express recommendations, contribute to scientific and technological monitoring, advise on partnership prospects with third parties and propose European and international collaboration initiatives and actions.

This first meeting was mainly dedicated to a presentation of the national context, and of the CCSD and the services it offers and develops.
