The tenth edition of “trieste next”, the Scientific Research Festival took place in Trieste from Friday 24 to Sunday 26 September 2021. On the occasion of the event “Open science: because knowing is good for the environment”, Alessandra Giorgetti, along with Paolo Diviacco, both from the National Institute of Oceanography and Applied Geophysics (OGS), was interviewed to explain what open science is about in a nutshell and what its Institute has been doing to pursue and promote its principles.
“Open science is a so-called umbrella term” A. Giorgetti said “that embraces many different concepts, such as sharing knowledge through open data and content, collaboration among researchers as well as among scientists and general public through citizen science, and technological development to support this openness.”
In this regard, EMODnet Chemistry was brought as an example of an online platform that gives free access to European data on marine water quality and also provides open services and tools to download and analyze them.
