Abstract: This article aims to contribute to a better understanding of the role of open science and its impact on knowledge management in the open innovation environment. The main premise of open innovation in the Europe Commission’s vision for Europe is to open the innovation process to all stakeholders from academia, business, government, and society. Owing to that, knowledge may create investment opportunities for innovative products and services as well as competitiveness in new markets. Open science is a relatively new approach to the scientific process, which is based on collaboration and advanced ways of spreading knowledge by using digital technologies and new tools. Open Science affects the entire process expanding its boundaries and permitting knowledge to be widely and quickly shared as well as easily updated. The idea is to make a profound change in science and research - moving from the traditional and well-established practice of disseminating research results in academic journals, seminars, and conferences to open sharing of the acquired knowledge and bringing it closer to the earlier stages of the innovation process. Open Science also involves a shift towards more open knowledge management in the open innovation environment. To ensure that knowledge management should be based on the principles of open science. This requires considerations of such critical factors as relevance, authenticity, and security of data sources while using the readily available results of open science. This article analyses the proposed open knowledge management framework reflecting on the impact of open sciences principles.
