Collaborating to improve open research skills in the UK
The open research support and scholarly communications sectors are key growth areas within universities. However, in the rapid evolution of this sector a skills gap has developed.
In addressing the skills gap, ORCC aims to identify and map the skills and competencies needed by the current and future open research support workforce. Professionalising these roles across the sector will achieve the very highest quality of support for researchers. ORCC engages heavily with the library and research management communities through active outreach at community workshops and conferences.
