The strategic objectives are discussed in dedicated briefs that describe the current state and propose nationally oriented strategic actions; these aim to comprehensively address the implications of Open Science and are anchored in the national context, international practices, major trends, and recommendations defined by the main European and global recommendations such as the European Commission's recommendationsUNESCO's Recommendation on Open Science (2021), and the Conclusions of the Competitiveness Council on Research Assessment and Implementation of Open Science from June 10, 2022.

The White Book was developed in a participatory process organized in multiple rounds through a series of workshops and mutual learning events, dissemination activities, and surveys for understanding the needs and degree of awareness regarding various aspects of open science. The public consultation on the Green Paper version was conducted by OSKH from August 18 to September 30, 2022; results from this consultation can be consulted here (in Romanian).
