Open Science is a collective term for the adaptation of digital technologies in the science system and the associated (intended) changes in research cultures and processes. One of the basic assumptions of Open Science is that digitalisation facilitates access to scientific methods, data and publications and promotes exchange within the science system and with other subsystems (economy and society).
Research and innovation (R&I) provides answers to important societal questions and thus also makes a significant contribution to addressing the Covid-19 pandemic.
