Open Science in HS

Interoperability is key to development of heritage science at a global level. Interoperability of data, materials and procedures implies a wider adoption of the open science paradigm. For better preservation of the global heritage, which is one of the core missions of heritage science, researchers need to have open access to knowledge, in the form of heritage data, methodological procedures and results, instruments and reference materials.
