My Experiment


Published on

MyExperiment è un social network all’interno del quale è possibile cercare flussi di lavoro scientifico resi pubblici, ma anche proporre, condividere e svilupparne di nuovi, al fine di creare delle comunità e sviluppare relazioni. La presentazione illustra la visione di My Experiment sull' Open Science
