Furthermore he showed KISTI's platforms: AccessON, DataON, ScienceON, that can show a competitiveness of KISTI.  On the 24th(Fri.), the last day of IDW 2022, KISTI held a one of co-event 'Open Science Workshop'. It aimed forming the understanding and consensus among Open Science stakeholders, and spreading the base of Open Science. The workshop became a place to share a status of national open science and cases to innovate S&T for the future. Industries-academia-research institutes participated online and offline, and its programs were ▲Open Science system·policy status and issues, ▲Direction of big data development through Open Access and Open Data, and ▲Open cooperation for an achievement of Open Science. In the 3 sessions, there were presentations and discussions of the current status and cases.  Kim Jae-soo, president of KISTI said, "In IDW 2022 and Open Science Workshop, KISTI got a leading international position of data-driven R&D field by confirmation a capability of developing and supporting global infrastructure to promote data sharing and re-use.
