This presentation will look at the work UCL (University College London) is doing to take a lead across Europe in introducing Open Science principles and practice. The first part of the presentation will describe the changes UCL has introduced to deliver Open Science infrastructure and outputs. The paper will then look at Rewards and Research Evaluation as key components which support the change in culture that Open Science requires. The focus of this section will be on UCL’s commitment to DORA and the first fruits of its implementation in UCL, in the new Academic Promotions Framework. The final part of the presentation will build on this and look at current and future planned activity, and the challenges of introducing culture change across the University. The paper will conclude by analysing the planned creation of a virtual UCL Open Science Office to co-ordinate developments across the University.
