Open Science

Open science is about the way research, education and innovation are carried out, disseminated, deployed and transformed by digital tools, networks and media. It relies on the combined effects of technological development and cultural change towards collaboration and openness throughout the spectrum of scientific activities. Open science makes scientific processes more efficient, transparent and effective by offering new tools for scientific collaboration, experiments and analysis and by making scientific knowledge as openly findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR) as possible (Swissuniversities, Swiss National Open Science Strategy)
