Open Data and Data Management - Issues and Challenges

SCNAT Workshop for Swiss stakeholders

Heure

10:00 - 17:00

Lieu de l'événement

Kaserne Bern
Papiermühlestrasse 15
Bern

The SCNAT is organizing this one day event in Bern, with the aim to give the research community the chance to raise their concern and also the SNF and the European Commission to present their view and to inform about recent trends. The workshop should provide recommendations on how to implement the open data requirements.

Open Data

In recent years a number of changes in scientific research took place, under the umbrella of the ‘open science’ label. Open access has essentially been introduced, and researchers from the sciences took the lead when introducing the preprint arXiv many years ago. Many researchers followed the path of open source by making their simulation codes publicly available. Presently the introduction of open data (and open data management plans) are on the horizon (or already introduced) by many European Funding Agencies.

However, the concept of ‘Open Data’ is also widely debated. While in certain fields the full disclosure of research data is suitable and straightforward, and happens thus naturally, in others it can become a burden and possibly affect research productivity. Its implementation leads to the following questions:

‚Can data of very diverse fields, from biology, chemistry, pharmacy, physics, geology, meteorology, material science, particle physics, mathematics, astronomy, etc. be treated in the same way?
‚How should one deal with data that are subject to competition with research groups from other (non-European) countries where other rules are in place?
‚What kind/level of data products must be disclosed?
‚How large is the effort to disclose the data in a useful way and are there enough resources?
