Outcome of the Competitiveness Council (Internal Market, Industry, Research and Space) meeting, Brussels, 26 and 27 May 2016: Member states agreed to common goals on open science and to pursue concerted actions together with the Commission and stakeholders. Delegations committed to open access to scientific publications as the option by default by 2020 and to the best possible re-use of research data as a way to accelerate the transition towards an open science system. They agreed that the transition to open science requires support from stakeholders, especially researchers. Member states must be also actively involved, including in the work of the Open Science Policy Platform.
