Open Science

Open access (OA) to scientific information and knowledge can accelerate research and innovation processes. At the same time, efficiency in research and development can be increased (fewer duplications) and all members of society can participate in developments. In order to exploit this potential, the European Union is pursuing an open access and open science approach in its funding concepts.

Open Science means, among other things, providing free online access to scientific information - publications and research data.
