I strongly support Open Access not only because Open Access to scientific papers and data supports the scientific community and stimulates scientific discourse but also because innovation is boosted by making research results visible to enterprises faster, thus fostering rapid development of new research-based products and services. In this way not only enterprises and scientists benefit from the Open Access to the academic discoveries but society as well.
