os4os – stands for open science and for open societies, and is a non-profit organization to promote science, research, and education. 

To address these issues, we initiate projects in the areas of Open Science, Citizen Science, Open Data, Open Source, Smart City, and Open Innovation. We also focus on the transfer of research results to civil society and companies, developing appropriate methods and tools.


Research data have a high reusability potential outside the realm of science and academia. Currently, Open Science is predominantly regarded as synonymous with Open Access. True open access to research data, real visibility, and reusability are all still a long way off. 

One of our primary goals is the creation and operation of the information portal The portal will provide comprehensive and up-to-date content on open science as well as research content that is fully openly accessible and visually understandable and will also be used by non-scientists.
