FOSTER was a coordination initiative that promoted the integration of open access principles and practice in the current research workflow.
- support a culture change, whereby the practical aspects of Open Science are fully implemented and ultimately rewarded, by providing an advanced-level, outcome-oriented training programme based on courses and activities for which participants can attain digital badges;
- consolidate and sustain a training support network comprised of Open Science ambassadors from a range of research performing organisations and research infrastructures;
- strengthen the training capacity by addressing the current skills and content gaps, both at community/discipline and institutional levels, on the practical implementation of Open Science.
