Increasing the awareness and implementation of Open Science and especially Open Data in human immunogenetics, genetics, bioethics and research ethics communities, through participation in meetings and education schemes in these domains. Fostering data sharing in these fields and making the values underpinning Open Science an essential elements of consideration. Communities targeted are European Federation for Immunogenetics, European Society of Human Genetics and several structures involved in bioethics and research ethics, especially through a UNESCO Chair. Finding ways of managing the tension between data sharing and individual protection in health domains is a common challenge that can be tackled with various tools and strategies.
