  17. 17. Conclusions and trends • The Open Movement has shown that it was not an alternative to quality • It is difficult to live in a whole Open day-to-day • Promotion of the Open Movement, mainly Open Science, should include teaching and students • Open Science should be considered as a skill in universitary degrees
