To make progress in science, we need to be open and share.

The British scientist Isaac Newton famously once said, along with many other luminaries over the years, “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants”. That may seem rather modest for the man who is credited with so many lasting ideas. But indeed he was right: because he couldn’t have reached the astonishing results he did without accessing and learning from the work of others. Without the raw data, the technical innovations and the findings of people like Brahe, Copernicus, and Kepler. And of course of Galileo, once himself a member of this very Academy.
