ROSiE | Responsible Open Science in Europe

ROSiE develops practical tools to support research ethics and research integrity in favor of an open research ecosystem in Europe.

ROSiE is a three-year project funded by HORIZON2020. Its mission is to co-create with all related stakeholders novel practical tools to foster a responsible open science and citizen science.

ROSiE will provide customized solutions through an interdisciplinary knowledge hub bound to actively pursuing open approaches in science and research, while complying with relevant legal frameworks and ethical standards.

The challenge

  • Identify novel ethical and legal issues, as well as new forms of misconduct and questionable practices brought about by open science.
  • Analyse them in the context of existing ethical and legal frameworks.
  • Pinpoint gaps and grey areas.
  • Integrate ethics and research integrity in open science and citizen science as a structural component.
