This was published on June 25, 2024

Since 2023, the Academies of Sciences Switzerland have been awarding the National Prize for Open Research Data (ORD Prize). This is part of the Action Plan "Open Research Data" implemented by the Academies as part of the National Strategy for Open Research Data. MARVEL Director Nicola Marzari, with his team, was among the four researchers who received a special acknowledgement from the jury at the first edition. Applications for the 2024 edition are open until 31 July 2024. Consider your participation.

The ORD prize jury defined two new focus areas for this year's competition:

  1. Collaborative and/or interdisciplinary reuse of research data
  2. Educational and/or outreach activities related to the reuse of research data.

Applications are open until 31 July 2024.

Submitted projects must be part of scientific work executed at a Swiss research institution (e.g., University, University of Applied Sciences, Federal Institutes, Universities of Teacher education etc.). Researchers from all career levels and scientific disciplines can apply. Early-career researchers and members from underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply, and applications will be evaluated considering differences in career stage and discipline.
