This report presents Open Science initiatives in Greece and proposes modern services with respect to different challenges that stakeholders in transport may face. The focus is given on how Greece responded to the modern movement of openness promoted by the European Commission for increasing transparency, integrity and reproducibility of data, information and results. Different initiatives of Open Science are presented covering infrastructures, portals, data and other services. Finally, a modern system is proposed for the transport sector in an attempt to exploit previous research work and speed up the path from research to innovation and promote stakeholders’ engagement.

open data, infrastructures, modern services
