The movement towards an Open Science, which is becoming more and more important in the political, institutional and scientific spheres, implies fundamental changes in the manner of generating, making accessible and using scientific knowledge, with the aim that society as a whole shifts from being a passive recipient of the research generated in the scientific centres’ laboratories to that of active participant in the different processes of knowledge creation.

In this sense, Open Science represents, as Commissioner Moedas said, “a new approach to the scientific process based on cooperative work and new ways of diffusing knowledge by using digital technologies and new collaborative tools”. This is a new way of performing science, using and sharing resources and knowledge throughout the research process, reflecting a collaborative, transparent and accessible approach.
