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 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 (summary here) and to present the data anonymization service developed by the OpenAIRE IT experts.

OpenAIRE fosters the social and technical links that enable Open Science in Europe and beyond (www.openaire.eu). OpenAIRE, funded by the European Commission under H2020, is the Open Access Infrastructure for Research in Europe, based on the network of open access repositories and open access journals. OpenAIRE aims to promote open scholarship and substantially improve the discoverability and reusability of research publications and data.
OpenAIRE is organizing a set of workshops which are raising awareness of OpenAIRE and its associated activities. These outreach workshops are concentrating on the uptake of the Open Access and Open Data EC mandate, other national funders Open Science requirements and also each focusing on a topical subject in infrastructure development that reflects the outcomes of the research studies in OpenAIRE and be open to a wide, diverse audience (+ info: https://www.openaire.eu/workshops/).
