Trends and Best Practices in Open Science
Knowledge should be shared at all stages of the research and innovation lifecycle and across the different disciplines, which makes it of particular importance to integrate open science practices as an elementary component from the beginning of each project.
The FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) will become the basis for research work. Several measures and methods need to be implemented in research and innovation projects to foster dissemination, communication and exploitation of research outputs.
We are a team of scientists and media experts. Our goal is to create a platform to make open science easier and exchange knowledge about the latest trends and best practices in the field of open science, and we are therefore looking for exciting projects, initiatives and groups committed to open science.
