The High-Level Group on Scientific Data presented today their final report to Neelie Kroes, European Commission Vice-President for the Digital Agenda. The report "Riding the Wave: How Europe can gain from the rising tide of scientific data" is the result of six months of intense brainstorming and consultations with experts around the world to prepare a "vision 2030" for Scientific Data e-Infrastructures.

The report describes long term scenarios and associated challenges regarding scientific data access, curation and preservation as well as the strategy and actions necessary to realise the vision. The High-Level Group is composed of twelve top-level European experts in different fields of science and is chaired by Prof John Wood, also chair of ERAB.
