Open access to data, codes, methods, and results of scientific research only unfolds its full potential, once it is possible to relate and interconnect them. Based on this, tools can be developed, which are of scientific  and social relevance. A prerequisite for this is the existence of suitable scientific infrastructures based 
on the FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable). The WG "Open Science and Research Data" is dedicated to the principles of Open Science and Open Access and supports the scientific community in its implementation.
