National ORD Prize

First Call for National Prize for Open Research Data

The Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences are launching 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. This new prize aims to recognize researchers for innovative practices in the field of Open Research Data (ORD) and aims to promote the transition to open research practices. Open research data promotes transparency, reproducibility, and collaboration within the scientific community and allows society to benefit from scientific knowledge. In 2023, the National ORD Prize is themed "Reuse of Research Data." Applications are open until August 31, 2023.

Award Ceremony

On December 6, 2023, the Academies invite you to the 1st National ORD Prize Award Ceremony at the Grande Société Berne.
