Swiss National Open Research Data Strategy

Switzerland has a national open research data strategy since the beginning of July 2021.

The strategy was developed by a working group of Swissuniversities on behalf of the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI). It is strongly based on the FAIR principles and takes the approach that research data should be "as open as possible, as protected as necessary". The strategy creates the framework for developing good practices in handling research data and for shaping the national service and infrastructure landscape. Later in the year, the strategy will be followed by the finalization of the ORD action plan and the launch of the program that will fund ORD activities in the period 2022-2024.
