Every day, an astonishing amount of data is generated in the life sciences. This is only set to increase in future. By openly sharing these data, the potential to develop new knowledge and foster innovation can be realized. The infrastructure and expertise at SIB are key to enabling the value chain of Open Research Data (ORD), starting with individual projects and leading to grand discoveries. Discover the concrete projects, expertise (e.g. data stewardship), and initiatives which position the institute at the forefront of the topic, from the development of openly accessible tools and databases to collaborative efforts to expand ORD principles across life sciences, and steering the setup of large-scale initiatives such as the SwissBioData ecosystem.
