Science is becoming increasingly data-driven. However, discovered data needs to be diverse and of high quality to make science efficient, reliable and responsive to societal challenges. This can be achieved only by making both data and science open. The lecture will provide an insight into current open-access and open-data strategies. The FAIR guiding principles for scientific data management will be elaborated, in order to understand how data needs to be prepared by data producers, scientists and data publishers to take full advantage of the generation of data. Experience from recent EU-funded projects FNS-Cloud, Metrofood, COMFOCUS, CAFETERIA, FishEUTrust etc. will be shared and discussed by the lecture’s participants.
