Details below. This statement has 3 things the ‘government must’ do, and text supporting these items. There isn’t any mention of open science and the role that it plays in all of the 3 named items. I think we could brainstorm a statement and have all of us submit it individually?
AGU’s position statement on government funding of science was recently updated by an expert task force to reflect the community’s stance on this key issue, as part of the recurring four-year process. The task force relies on comments by members to finalize the draft statement, which is then approved by AGU’s Board and Council. The comment period runs 1-30 June 2021.
