    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;The report analyses the potential impact of a transition towards Open Science on the stakeholders of the research ecosystem. The following findings are discussed.&lt;/p&gt;

	&lt;li&gt;Innovative digital tools that facilitate communication, collaboration, and the data analysis will enable Open Science practices.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;All stakeholders of the research ecosystem will benefit from Open Science, although it will change work habits and business models.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Digital platforms will facilitate innovation by streamlining all phases of the innovation process, from the generation of ideas to experimental work and fundraising.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Citizens will become new players of the research ecosystem. They will shape science policies and contribute to scientific research through citizen science actions and by funding researchers.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Digital science start-ups will shape the future of Open Science and innovate in the exploitation of the flow of information made publicly available with the advent of Open Science.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;The EU can accelerate the transition towards Open Science thanks to its unique position as funder and policy maker. A three-step program is suggested that will: 1) support the on-going transformation; 2) make systemic change to open the way to fully implemented Open Science; and 3) unlock the societal and economic value of Open Science.&lt;/li&gt;
