EC Report From Public Consultation on Open Research Data

The European Commission has published a report of its public consultation on open research data, held in July in Brussels

The report summarizes the views of a wide variety of stakeholders (eg. researchers, industry, research funders, libraries, publishers, infrastructure developers) in response to five key questions: 

  1. How can we define research data and what types of data should be open?
  2. When and how does openness need to be limited?
  3. How should the issue of data re-use be addressed?
  4. Where should research data be stored and made accessible?
  5. How can we enhance data awareness and a culture of sharing?

 In addition to the online report published by the EC, you can read about LIBER’s views on the importance of this work for research libraries.
