Specific challenge:TDM is the process of deriving information from machine-read material and is an essential feature in open science and innovation. It has enabled new innovations, with ramifications not only for research itself but also for the economy and society. Building upon present knowledge is an important component of research that leads to new innovations. TDM therefore has a huge potential for research and innovation and the economy as a whole. However, there are significant barriers which hinder the more widespread use of TDM in the European Union.
Scope:This proposals shall study TDM in the modern research environment and its relations with societal implications, with the following foci:
Policy developments and legal framework in the EU and its Member States (including copyright exemptions);
Increasing awareness of TDM in institutional settings and among stakeholders, as well as the skills, rewards and support involved in using this technology.
Technical requirements for an optimal TDM infrastructure shall be dealt as part of the call ion e-Infrastructures in the Research Infrastructures (including e-Infrastructure) Work Programme (topic EINFRA 1-2014 – Managing, preserving and computing with big research data). Nevertheless, the winning proposals in these two calls are expected to engage in a mutual dialogue and establish synergies in their work.
The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of the order of EUR 1.5 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.
Expected Impact:This action willreduce barriers in order to increase the uptake of TDM by researchers and innovative businesses as a tool in the co-creation of knowledge, which will result in wider and more efficient circulation of knowledge and ultimately lead to a R&I policy that is more relevant for and responsive to society.
Type of action: Coordination and Support Actions.
