EOSC Future grant: Data practices in an interdisciplinary perspective


The project specified the overview and challenges of data sharing practices in four scientific disciplines: architecture, civil engineering, economics and natural language processing. The review described the opportunities for data sharing in diverse disciplines, workflow practices in data management, implementation of metadata standards, and the social aspect of sharing data, such as researchers’ attitudes and discipline-specific traditions. Simultaneously, the existing data repository (MOST WIEDZY Open Research Data Catalogue) has been implemented into the EOSC Portal Catalogue and Marketplace.
Adopting best practices within the research community of the disciplines that are not very advanced yet in disseminating data at the national and the international level is in line with the goals of RDA and EOSC, not to exclude the disciplines and countries less represented among the international academic community. The project resolved to take a closer look at four scientific disciplines represented at the Gdańsk University of Technology that might be useful in the international context. The motivation for choosing those scientific disciplines was mainly that they do not have robust data management practices, sharing data is often difficult due to copyright issues, and their characteristics are comprehensive, which makes their analysis challenging and very interesting. In addition, from the perspective of Gdańsk university, these disciplines often work together, which allows generating and sharing of interesting cross-disciplinary data sets.
