Open Science is an EC Policy Priority under the broader Responsible Research & Innovation (RRI) approach. Open Science is more than just access to research for tax payer on the ethical grounds, and is about performing research in a way that optimises societal impact of the research. Traditionally, research has focused on the peer-review publication as the main output of the research process. Open Science philosophy, best practices and e-infrastructure allows for the entire Research Lifecycle to be more transparent, reproducible, and accessible to citizen scientists and the knowledge-based private sector. Ultimately, the EC aims to use Open Science to fuel Open Innovation and public trust in research.
