ORION is a EU funded project to facilitate Open Science and Responsible Research and Innovation in the Babraham Institute and other European research funding and performing organisations. Open Science is about making research more accessible, which is increasingly important for improving the quality of research and for assessing it. Whether citizen or researcher, this project needs you. Get involved!
