Open Science Week

Open Science Week

Our openly available scientific tools, data and resources accelerate research that improves human health. We have been commited to sharing our science since 2003 with the creation of our inaugural open data resource, the Allen Mouse Brain Atlas, and open science remains one of our core principles

That’s why we launched Open Science Week, a campaign to celebrate and promote the value of open science. This annual celebration happens the third week of September.

Check out highlighted content from our inaugural campaign below.
