Sustainable funding models are a requisite for Open Science (OS), to ensure peer review. Hjerling-Leffler pointed out that we also need to bear in mind that OS must be applied in a manner that fosters inclusion, e.g. also of researchers in low-income countries and younger researchers. OS must not become an overwhelming bureaucratic burden. Researchers themselves must be included in the implementation of OS. In general there are great opportunities with OS, for example as a way to make science more reliable, and in making datasets available for more scientific inquiries, Hjerling-Leffler emphasized.
