Open science is now widely recognized as likely to foster more collaborative, more cumulative and more efficient research. However, its generalization requires a careful consideration of the research practices specific to each scientific community.
In this context, the French National Research Agency launchs a call for expressions of interest that aims to enrich the national and international reflection on the practices and challenges of open science. This critical approach can take various forms and pursue various objectives. If some approaches aim to better understand scientific practices, their diversity and their evolution, others intend to contribute to public research policies by providing data, measurement or evaluation tools, and by formulating proposals and recommendations. This call for expressions of interest is open to both approaches.
Without limitation, project proposals may be based on mono or multidisciplinary approaches. They can be multiscalar, comparative, experimental, historical, sociological, economic, philosophical and present case studies. They must take into account the context defined by the public policies implemented at the national, European and, if necessary, international levels.

The appelsprojetsrecherche.fr portal centralises all information on calls for proposals and calls for applications from ADEME, ANR, Inserm including ANRS, Anses and INCa. It provides a simplified access to upcoming and ongoing calls, giving a greater visibility to funding opportunities. Following their closing date, the calls remain published for a few months.
