The UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science, adopted in November 2021, emphasizes the values of quality and integrity of research, diversity and inclusiveness, equity and fairness, and collective benefit that underpin Open Science. To be truly open and valuable, science must be documented and supported by properly managed and, whenever possible, openly shared data.
Funding agencies have introduced strict requirements for the open sharing of research results, including manuscripts of scientific articles, data, and other research products. These must be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR) for humans and machines. To support its researchers, IIT has significantly enhanced its Open Science and Research Data Management support services in collaboration with the Research Organization, Information and Communication Technology, and Legal Affairs Directorates.
