New Report from EU: “The Data Harvest: How Sharing Research Data Can Yield Knowledge, Jobs and Growth”
In October 2010, the High Level Group on Scientific Data presented the “Riding the Wave,” report to the European Commission outlining a series of policy recommendations on how Europe could gain from the rising tide of scientific data.
Over 4 years later, a team of European experts have generated a new report “The Data Harvest: How sharing research data can yield knowledge, jobs and growth” with an update on the landscape described in the previous report aiming to sound a warning on how Europe must act now to secure its standing in future data markets.
In this report, we outline the benefits and challenges, and offer recommendations to European policy makers. The seeds have been sown. Now is the time to plan the harvest.
