EU-LIFE nominated for the EC Open Science Platform

30 May 2016

The Directorate-General for Research and Innovation at the European Commission established a Commission Advisory Group to provide advice about the development and implementation of open science policy in Europe.

Commissioner Moedas announced the launch of this new advisory platform as well as its members at the Competitiveness Council, which took place 27th May in Brussels. He emphasised that open science is one of the three policy priorities of his mandate which represents 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.

“With the boost of digital data, an EU policy on access to knowledge and data sharing is urgent and utmost important to stay excellent in science, while safeguarding the opportunities to translate scientific results into economic growth. VIB is therefore very pleased to have EU-Life represented in the Open Science Policy Platform of EU Commissioner Moedas.” - Lieve Ongena (Science Policy Manager VIB)

VIB is one of the founding members of EU-Life.
