On April 13, Carlos Moedas, the European Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, together with delegates from the State of Baden-Wuerttemberg, visited EMBO and EMBL in Heidelberg. Commissioner Moedas discussed with EMBO Director Maria Leptin and EMBL Director General Iain Mattaj ways to serve the needs of researchers and innovators in the life sciences in Europe. "We were pleased that our conversation with Commissioner Moedas revealed so many points of convergence on key issues such as data integrity, open science and, more generally, transparency in the scientific process," said Maria Leptin. "As we continue our work on research integrity and develop a concrete approach to open science with EMBO's SourceData initiative, we look forward to continued and productive interactions with the Commission to strengthen European scientific excellence and global reach."
