In that case, all other similar researches would have benefit me, but depending on the field, it would be more or less complex to share data. In the case of sensible data, it is not straightforward.  Considering the human factor, the ethics and competition in sciences, we should do our best to create robust standards, protocols and rules, as well as promoting the new culture of open science.
