Open science is an umbrella term that refers to the opening of the creation and dissemination of scholarly knowledge towards a multitude of stakeholders, from professional researchers to citizens. If successfully implemented, open science stimulates broader collaborations and accelerates scientific discovery, ultimately better addressing global challenges and bringing greater benefits for the society.

Opening the scientific process for creating knowledge means opening the access to a number of diverse resources like scientific instruments, scientific data, digital infrastructures and software tools, knowledge and expertise, all needed in some form to conduct research.

Opening these resources require the adoption of standards, the right legal frameworks and license, and clear rules for access. Yet, this is not enough to ensure open science to fully flourish. Engaged communities that contribute to the management and stewardship of these resources is essential. We call the collection of open resources for science for which engaged community contribute to the management through shared rules and norms the open science commons.

The goal of this workshop is to discuss with representatives from funding agencies, policy makers, data archiving organizations, knowledge institutions, research infrastructures and e-Infrastructures can contribute to the development of an open science commons.
