8th OpenAIRE workshop: Legal issues in Open Research Data

Save the date! 4 April, Barcelona, Spain

Whether measurements from sensors, results from simulations or interview recordings, modern scholarship generates incredible amounts of digital information which, properly kept and shared, holds the potential to drive new research and innovation. Recognising this, funders are implementing policies for RDM and data sharing, such as the Horizon 2020 Open Research Data Pilot, which aims to improve and maximise access to the research data generated by EU-funded projects. This growing interest in open access, preservation and dissemination of research data, however, brings with it a number of legal challenges in areas including intellectual property considerations, data protection and privacy.

This 8th OpenAIRE workshop, taking place as part of the RDA Ninth Plenary Meeting, Barcelona, Spain, will explore legal hindrances and possible solutions to open up research data. It will examine the issues and acquaint the audience with a critical understanding of the key legal issues surrounding open research data, including data protection, IPR and PSI and foster data sharing and re-use by giving pragmatic direction and concrete recommendations to stakeholders on what are their legal obligations and how best to negotiate them. The workshop will be also the opportunity to discuss the new OpenAIRE legal study and to present the data anonymization service developed by the OpenAIRE IT experts.
