The Commission recognizes research data as important as publications
In our recent Data Forward entry, we drew your attention to Horizon 2020. Here is a related news about the pilot on Open Research Data in Horizon 2020.
Researchers in projects participating in the pilot are asked to make the underlying data needed to validate the results presented in scientific publications and other scientific information available for use by other researchers, innovative industries and citizens. This will lead to better and more efficient science and improved transparency for citizens and society. It will also contribute to economic growth through open innovation. For 2014-2015, topic areas participating in the Open Research Data Pilot will receive funding of around €3 billion.
