The report of the Expert Group on open research data in transport has been published!
The Report focuses on the requirements for data sharing within the transport research community. In particular, it examines the potential for the establishment of a Transport Research Cloud (TRC) as a subset of the European Union’s European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) initiative.
Six domain experts collected data based on their personal experiences, contacts, prior research and a survey sent out to other researchers in the transport domain to enable a preliminary analysis concerning the needs, barriers and potential benefits of transport research data sharing. From this work ten recommendations have been developed that the Experts believe must be addressed if a sustainable Transport Research Cloud is to be realized.
