Open Science Week

Celebrating open science and its impact

Open Science Week is a celebration of open science in all its forms, calling attention to scientists and organizations who share their tools, resources and data openly to accelerate research and discovery. This annual celebration, founded and coordinated by the Allen Institute, takes place during the third week of September. 

Open science can’t happen without a community. We at the Allen Institute are committed to sharing our data and other resources publicly and openly because we believe science is better when we all combine forces, ultimately benefitting humanity faster. This year, we’re happy to highlight many other organizations who are making a big impact in open science.

During the 2021 Open Science Week campaign, we were proud to feature the following collaborators and partner organizations committed to open science.
