To ensure scientific processes and results being transparent and accessible is the core idea behind ‘Open Science’. This includes a complete list of research materials and procedures, all sets of raw data and the line of argumentation and discussion of the results. 

In order for research results to be shared and applied globally we will discuss options and possibilities of Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR) data management as well as investigate aspects and principles of Open Access, Open Data and initiatives to democratize reagents and equipment.
