DAE 101 Actions
101 Actions Advising on... ICT Research Policy Scientific Information e-Infrastructures etc.
The European Commission as......Policy Maker Launches policy debates Invites Member States to take action Proposes EU legislation...Funding Agency e.g. Research & InnovationResearchInnovation Access policies for funded research...Infrastructure Builder Funds research infrastructures Funds related research Supports networking activities
...proposed Horizon 2020Horizon 2020 Key elements - For For R&D and for Innovation projects - Funding: EUR 80bn... - Strong increase for e-Infrastructures - Open Access to research results: for all publications, to data where appropriate Press Release IP/11/1475 of 30 November 2011IP/11/1475 Informationsportal:
...now debated in Parliament and Council European Parliament Council of the European Union
Status Quo OA to Publications Covers 20% FP7 budget Best effort mandate Embargo (6/12m) Costs reimbursable OA to Data Some projects Not systematic
Digital Agenda & Open Access […] publicly funded research should be widely disseminated through Open Access publication of scientific data and papers A Digital Agenda for Europe (COM(2010)245, ), […] the Commission will appropriately extend current Open Access publication requirements […]
[...] the Commission will propose a European Research Area framework and […]seek to ensure […] dissemination [...] of research results, including through open access to publications and data from publicly funded research. Innovation Union (COM(2010)546, ), The Commission will promote open access to the results of publicly funded research. It will aim to make open access to publications the general principle for projects funded by the EU research Framework Programmes […] Innovation Union & Open Access
Strong political support Scientific information has the power to transform our lives for the better – it is too valuable to be locked away. The question is no longer if we should have open access. The question is about how we should develop it further and promote it. Access to scientific results for free, for all, for ever is a compelling vision indeed.
Communication & Recommendation on Scientific Information Indications for Open Access in Horizon 2020 Recommendation for Member State actions Likely Adoption: Q3/2012 [The Commission] will work with Member States to step up their activities to provide open access to scientific information [...]. In parallel, the Commission will detail how it will deal with the results of research funded by the European Union. Commission Open Data Strategy 2011 (COM(2011)882, p. 9(COM(2011)882
Preparing for Data the data themselves become the infrastructure. Geant High Level Expert Group, Report of October 2011
reference=SPEECH/10/518 "My goal is to raise awareness of the opportunities represented by scientific data" "[T]ruly free access to scientific data is not possible without a coordinated effort of European and global stakeholders to build and sustain an underlying seamless and trusted infrastructure." reference=SPEECH/12/392 "[Interoperability] is the key to global, multi-disciplinary science, supported by reliable and high- performance data infrastructure. We need datasets and software to work with each other"
Building Infrastructures maintain, link, extend plus
What next for Open Science? Policy Who will run science data infrastructures? Towards a common approach in Europe Funding Build on PRACE, GÉANT, OpenAIREplus etc. Infrastructures to cope with Big Data Drive research into tools & methods Community Building For example: Digital Humanities EuropeanaEuropeana as a research infrastructure (funded through the Connecting Europe Facility)Connecting Europe Facility
