The University of Twente stimulates its employees to:
- publish their scientific output open access in a peer-reviewed OA journal, and to
- make their research data sustainably accessible in a Trusted Repository, where their research data are kept verifiable, replicable and reusable for the long term, even if the hardware and software become obsolete.
To that end, the University of Twente offers its employees financial incentives from the Open Science Fund. University of Twente employees may apply for one Open-Access Publishing Grant and one Open Research Data Grant per year.
