Altmetrics has the opportunity to promote Open Science by broadening our understanding of impact, thus reflecting the need to update standards and motivateresearchers to focus on quality not quantity of research. This report starts by giving a brief overview of Open Science and the academic reward system in general, followed by a discussion about how altmetrics could contribute to the academic reward system, and how altmetrics could promote wider adoption of Open Science in the Member States. Altmetrics are, however, not ready to be used alone for research assessment.

With the amount of digital data created and stored increasing day upon day, the opportunities offered by big data — paired with the development of novel data management, storage and analysis tools — are almost endless and promise to revolutionise many sectors. In fact, it is quite clear from the scientific literature that most of the gains to be made from the use of data mining are to come from the exploitation of big data. In the EU alone, an estimated 1.9 % in economic growth (i.e. a GDP increase of EUR 206 billion) could be achievable with big data analytics by 2020.
