Research Data

Working on openness and reuse of data at European level.

KE_35

Research Data has been a focus area for KE for a long time. In 2017 KE opened up to a broader challenge. In the new theme Open Scholarship KE will address research data related issues in a more integrated approach. 

Themes and topics address in our work on research data included:

The Value of Research Data

A first landscape study of data metrics and of the use of datasets in science to stimulate data sharing. 

Incentives and Motivations for Sharing Research Data

report with recommendations based on interviews with researchers on their sharing data practice.

Training and skills for research data management (RDM)

The outputs of this work include a report on the status quo of RDM in Finland, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK, a list of available training materials across the five partner countries, an overview of common training needs, and key recommendations.

Funding research data infrastructure

Together with Science Europe KE commissioned a landscape study on the views of funders, infrastructure providers and research organisations about how funding should be organised.

The Research Data Expert Group

The Research Data Expert Group consists of representatives from both KE partner organisations and strategic stakeholders from the scientific infrastructure communities (e.g. data archives and libraries).

The expert group is working on the following issues:

  • Establishing a clearer idea of where strategy and policy might align among partner communities. Make a network available to exchange expert advice and opinion on issues of policy and strategy and establish dialogue and relationships with various stakeholders
  • Establishing a network of peers, informed and aware of policy implications and strategic developments of the partner organisations addressing the challenges of managing research data
  • Informing the EU Commission of the Knowledge Exchange partners' views on preferred infrastructural developments and supporting the open data movement
