Fostering responsible open science in Europe

We develop and openly share practical tools that ensure research ethics and research integrity in open science and citizen science


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.

Our contribution

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.

  1. 1Identify novel ethical and legal issues, as well as new forms of misconduct and questionable practices brought about by open science.
  2. 2Analyse them in the context of existing ethical and legal frameworks.
  3. 3Pinpoint gaps and grey areas.
  4. 4Integrate ethics and research integrity in open science and citizen science as a structural component.

Key concepts

The movement to make scientific research (including publications, data, physical samples, and software) and its dissemination accessible to all levels of an inquiring society.

Scientific research conducted, in whole or in part, by non-professional scientists.

Scientific research and technological development processes that take into account effects and potential impacts on the environment and society Research Ethics: concerned with the moral issues that arise during or as a result of research activities, as well as the ethical conduct of researchers.

Refers to Reliability, Honesty, Respect and Accountability. The authors of the influential Singapore Statement on Research Integrity proposed fundamental principles relating to Honesty, Accountability, professional courtesy and fairness, and Good stewardship of research.



Ethical, integrity, social, and legal challenges, as well as existing technologies that safeguard responsible open science.

Stakeholders to create and facilitate a community of practice to gather knowledge for a responsible open science.

Stakeholders with operational guidelines, a supplement to the ECoC, and a critical assessment on existing technologies and platforms for responsible open science.

Stakeholders with a Knowledge Hub for open science OS and training materials for the research ethics and integrity aspects of open science.

Τarget Groups

How do they benefit from Rosie?

A consultation and stakeholder engagement through workshops and discussions with the Stakeholder Forum; creating and facilitating a community of practice to gather knowledge on Research Ethics and Research Integrity in Open Science from other European projects.

ROSiE partners will reach out the research community and policy-makers, in order to co-create with them novel practices in the design, the preparation, the making, the valorization and the evaluation of science.
