The National Open Science Plan announced by Frédérique Vidal on July 4th, 2018 made open access mandatory for publications and research data produced by projects funded by public research grants. The plan set up an Open Science Committee in support to major landscape structuring initiatives for publications and data. These also include skill development and international components which are essential to mobilize the scientific communities and have France play a role in this emerging landscape. One year after its publication, how is the French national plan for open science moving forward?
