The EUI Library’s presentation at the European Commission public hearing on open research data has been posted on the EC’s Digital Agenda site. The Other presentations are also available online. The official report of the event is at this link. The EC consultation was convened as a public hearing, with presentations from research organisations, industry, infrastructure specialists, publishers, librarians and funders.  The EC is formulating a policy on open data, and a pilot project is due for launch towards the end of 2013.

Participants at the Brussels hearing were invited to address five primary questions:
How can we define research data?
How should the issue of data re-use be addressed?
When and how does openness need to be limited?
Where should research data go?
How can we enhance data awareness and a culture of sharing?

Background on the event is at this EC link.
The EUI’s presentation – focusing on social science and economic research data – is at this link.

During Open Access Week at the EUI, there will be an overview of Open Data Trends in Badia room II (cloister) at 13:30 on Wednesday, 23 October.  All are welcome.
