Open Science 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. Universities, with their immense knowledge resources and student and faculty talent, are at the helm of this revolution. EELISA has set open science as a key cross-cutting issue for the Alliance, implementing a whole array of activities: EELISA Open Science. This includes the EELISA network of OS Ambassadors.
