2.1 Introduction

In the previous chapter we talked a lot about what Open Science is, and about some of the core values that underlie it. In this chapter we'll survey, through tangible examples, some of the many benefits OS can bring when these core values are put into practice, including:

Accelerated innovation
Increasing efficiencies in research and development.

Facilitating large-scale data projects.

More responsive policy and research
Addressing public needs as a consequence of better and more inclusive research.

Diversification of science
Through inclusive collaborations.

Career benefits
For individual researchers.
