Conference session

Human-Scale: accessing, sharing, and using data for the common good

Opening up scientific and public data and developing its use for society.

Theme: H2020: ICT for Excellent science

Hall 1.1, 08/11/2013 (11.00-12.30)

The session will

  • raise awareness on the EU's policy regarding Open Access, Open Data and Digital Science, particularly looking to implementation in Horizon2020;
  • explore the human scale dimension: what are the issues raised by an increased access to information, in the scientific process and in the public and society; and how can we deal with an (over)abundance of information?

Four presentations will highlight the topical issues in a set of related areas, setting the scene for a panel discussion:

Open Access to publications and data

Skills development through open scientific collaboration

Accessing, sharing and (re)using Open Data

The Social Science and Humanities (SSH) dimension of the digital world
