Open Science Office at the University of Mannheim Made Permanent

The Open Science Office at the University of Mannheim, founded in 2021, will be made permanent after three years of start-up funding. This decision underlines the University's clear commitment to transparent and reproducible research and its active role in promoting Open Science.

The Open Science Office was established at the University of Mannheim in 2021 to anchor Open Science institutionally and create a central point of contact for enquiries relating to Open Science within the university. It supports researchers at all career levels and disciplines in implementing Open Science practices by providing advice, training, and special grants. After three years of start-up funding, the university has now decided to make the Open Science Office permanent based on an evaluation of its impact report.
