Open Access

“It is a human right to have access to publicly funded knowledge. Not a single person should be left behind.” - science policy-maker

Open access and open science include several dimensions related to free access to publicly funded scientific results, access to publications as well as research data including re-use rights.

Research results, especially those financed with public sources, are seen as public matters that should be available widely. Open access promotes excellence in R&I and improves the exchange of knowledge and further fosters innovation.

The aim to enhance understanding of the world is shared globally and open access breaks barriers and improves science collaboration for a better future.

Open access makes R&I results as well as the processes used to achieve them accessible so that society can anticipate trends and get involved. The aim is to improve transparency and accountability.
