Examples of activities we’ll consider include (but are not limited to):
● Making outputs findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR) eg implementing new approaches and standards to help researchers in the same discipline developing open platforms or tools eg for combining or repurposing datasets and other research outputs from different locations or disciplines, or for mining vast quantities of research data and content
● Improving research reproducibility eg developing tools to package data with code, assessing the reproducibility of published findings or testing new reporting standards
● Speeding up ways to find and share data eg using open lab notebooks to share research and collaborate in real-time (or near real-time)
● Looking at the role block chain technology could play in managing and disseminating research outputs and assigning credit
● Testing new metrics that offer transparent and fair ways to evaluate open research
● Embedding incentives that encourage researchers to adopt open research approaches during research and to share their research outputs
● Developing crowdsourcing approaches to increase participation in research eg annotating complex datasets or enabling co-design and development of research projects.

You can’t use this funding for:
● Open access publication costs, or other publication costs, eg colour or page charges

● Maintenance and support for ongoing running costs of an existing database, software tool or other resource, unless this involves the development of significant new functionality to benefit open research.
