European Research Data Landscape (2021-2022) LIVESTREAMED

Wednesday 16th November 2022 - 2.30pm - 4.00 pmRoom: MeridianEC

About the session

The study “European Research Data Landscape” provides a detailed characterisation of the research data ecosystem in the European context, covering the EU Member States, Horizon 2020 Associated Countries and the UK. Providing estimated volumes, country and discipline wise, and key information on FAIR practices and FAIR enabling repositories, the study report intends to support the EC and the Open Science stakeholders, notably the EOSC Association, to develop more targeted policies and actions to make FAIR and open data practices more mainstreamed.

Specific Objectives covering the following:

  • To collect data on data production and consumption by scientific disciplines and relevant sub-disciplines
  • To collect and analyse information on data deposition practices, data typology and volume
  • To collect data on the level of maturity with respect to FAIR data implementation to characterise European science system
  • To assess the responsiveness and readiness of research data repositories in terms of the implementation of FAIR principles

Scope of the study:

  • All fields of science (data on first and second level FOS)
  • Geographically covering EU Member States, Horizon 2020 Associated Countries, and the UK

Relevance for EOSC

This study has been realised to offer a full characterisation and analysis of the “research data market”. The information provided and the study’s recommendations aim at supporting the EOSC Partnership, the European Commision and the Member States (including Associated Countries) in decision making and identification of actions and instruments concerning the implementation of EOSC, the FAIR data principles and the Open Science agenda. An in-depth analysis on data production, consumption, and deposition by the European researchers is necessary to estimate volumes of data, typologies, and to identify current researchers’ data deposition habits with a thin granularity and at discipline level (second level of the Revised Field of Science and Technology – FOS classification in the Frascati Manual ).


14:30 – 16:00 – Introduction – What are the research data practices
– Context, scope and methodology of the study
– What data is currently produced and reused by researcher
– How FAIR are researchers’ practices in depositing data and critical factors
– Assessment of research data repositories through the F-UJI too – outcomes and conclusions
– Insights and recommendations to tackle challenges and gaps
– Q&A and discussion
