The Future of Research Communications and e-Scholarship


On this page:

Sponsors and funders have always been a big part of the FORCE11 community. We’ve run as an organization with grants from funders. 

Both FSCI and the FORCE11 annual conference rely on sponsorship from many different partners. In acknowledgment of this support, we design sponsorship  packages that will allow for maximum visibility before, during, and after the events.

FORCE11 Scholarly Communications Institute (FSCI)

The FSCI is a summer school that helps people learn how to navigate this new world. Its instructors include leading practitioners from the world of research, libraries, publishing, and research administration. Courses range from basic orientations through classes in the most advanced topics. Its goal is to provide a friendly, community-based way of learning about and keeping up to date on the latest trends, technologies, and opportunities that are transforming the way science and scholarship is done. 

2022 FSCI will take place July 25–29 2022. If you’d like to offer sponsorship now, please email 

FORCE Annual Conference

The annual conference brings together a diverse group of people interested in changing the way in which scholarly and scientific information is communicated and shared. The goal is to maximize efficiency and accessibility. As always, the conference is a place for all stakeholders to come to the table for open discussion on an even playing field in support of innovation and coordination across perspectives. 

We very much hope that you will be able to help support this year’s FORCE11 events. FORCE2023 will be held online on April 18-20 2023. The conference page is located here. Sponsorship opportunities are available, please see below. If you have questions about sponsorship, please email
