Open Science

Nowadays, it is widely recognised that making research results more accessible contributes to better and more efficient science, and to innovation in the public and private sectors.

Open Science, or Open Access, is all about enabling easier access to scientific results. This includes taking into consideration IT-infrastructure, intellectual property rights, content-mining and alternative metrics, but also inter-institutional, inter-disciplinary and international collaboration among all actors in research and innovation.

This is reflected in the Science with and for Society work programme of Horizon 2020 with calls addressing text and data mining, and innovative approach to release and disseminate research results and measure their impact.
