The National Open Science Plan was launched on 4 July 2018 by the Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation. This plan includes a provision to support Software Heritage, an initiative that we consider a major pillar of open science. In addition to enabling open access to publications and research data, making research software source code openly available is critical to success of the open science program that we are collectively building.
