The Benefits of STECONF
Reducing duplication costs in collecting, creating, transferring and reusing data and scientific material; allowing more research from the same data; and multiplying opportunities for domestic and global participation in the research process.
The greater scrutiny offered by Open Science allows a more accurate verification of research results.
Increased access to research results can foster spillovers and extra benefits to researchers, not only to scientific systems but also to innovation systems broadly.
STECONF also allows the closer involvement and participation of citizens from across the globe.
