Accessible knowledge for better medicine
Swiss Biotech Report 2019: The SNSF is working towards a more open science which will also enable researchers to better support the evolving biotech sector.
The biotech sector is seeing rapid change. And these changes need to be shaped actively. It is therefore fitting that the theme of this year's Swiss Biotech Report is "Shaping Change". The SNSF's contribution to the report promotes the global push for open science. If all research data is disclosed (open research data), replicating and verifying research findings will become much easier. Open access to scientific publications will accelerate processes and make them more transparent. By pursuing this goal, the SNSF is making a contribution towards increased efficiency in biomedical research.
