Text and Data Mining for Scientific Research Purposes (WG4)
The Commission's objective is to promote the efficient use of text and data mining (TDM) for scientific research purposes. TDM currently requires contractual agreements between users (e.g. typically research institutions) and rights holders (e.g. publishers of scientific journals) to establish the modalities for technical access to the relevant data sets.
The Group should explore solutions such as standard licensing models as well as technology platforms to facilitate TDM access.
