Open Science

Based on P-5, the Open Science program will create the conditions to ensure that Swiss higher education institutions can reuse, distribute and reproduce research data and methods electronically. It will do so in accordance with the «FAIR» principle, which aims to make all information findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable.

This will help Switzerland improve its chances of confirming and further expanding its leading position in the fields of research and teaching as well as its reputation as one of the world’s
most innovative countries.
