NASA is awarding a total of $6.5 million to U.S. institutions for education and training in open science. The promise of open science is that NASA research and data should be more collaborative, accessible, inclusive, and transparent for everyone from the scientist and student to the city manager and citizen.

The agency's Open-Source Science Initiative (OSSI) is promoting change in the openness and speed of access to scientific information by supporting new training opportunities. To kickoff the initiative, NASA is investing in a 5-year Transform to Open Science (TOPS) project, which helps researchers engaged with NASA and beyond to put open science into practice.

"NASA is opening up science like never before," said Chelle Gentemann, program scientist for TOPS. "Opening science calls for a shift in both the culture of science and how we conduct research. These awards equip interested scientists and researchers to become the next leaders and innovators working in the open to transform their fields."

TOPS projects target scientists and researchers at all levels of their careers - from undergraduate students to principal investigators to program managers. TOPS summer schools and virtual cohorts promote understanding of open science using an introductory curriculum called Open Science 101. A new curriculum called ScienceCore helps learners increase their knowledge and skills in specific disciplines.

"We are building an open science ecosystem for a more equitable, impactful, and efficient scientific future," said Yaitza Luna-Cruz, program officer for the TOPS Training (TOPST) initiative. "Open science is about making sure that scientific knowledge is not only accessible, but also reproducible and inclusive. TOPS is a crucial step towards increasing participation of historically excluded groups across NASA Science."

Technology in development today could radically change the future of air and space exploration. Nearly silent electric aircraft could ferry people and packages around cities, a sprawling radio telescope array on the far side of the Moon could reveal new secrets about the universe, and astronauts on long-duration missions could grow their own medicines to protect their health. These concepts are among six selected for continued study under the NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) program. The n ... read more
