A new development in Horizon 2020 - the Open Research Data Pilot - aims to improve access to the research data generated by European Union (EU) funded projects.
On 9 June 2015, EIFL hosted an OpenAIRE webinar: Horizon 2020 Open Research Data Pilot And The Zenodo Data Repository, focused on the new development and the benefits of taking an active approach to research data management, including increased speed and ease of access, efficiency (fund once, re-use many times), and improved quality and transparency of research.
The webinar was led by Martin Donnelly (Digital Curation Centre at the University of Edinburgh, partner in the EU FOSTER project); Elly Dijk and Marjan Grootveld (Data Archiving and Networked Services (DANS), and Lars Holm Nielsen (CERN, Zenodo data repository).
