The Data Harvest Report – sharing data for knowledge, jobs and growth

The Research Data Alliance (RDA) is an international organisation built on the collaboration between data practitioners with a vision of openly sharing data across technologies, disciplines, and countries to address the grand challenges of society. Scientists, researchers and innovators join forces with technical experts in focused Working Groups and exploratory Interest Groups.

In October 2010, the High Level Group on Scientific Data presented the "Riding the Wave,” report to the European Commission outlining a series of policy recommendations on how Europe could gain from the rising tide of scientific data.

Over 4 years later, a team of European experts have generated a new report called the "Data Harvest" to outline how Europe must act now to secure it’s standing in future data markets. It offers recommendations to European policy makers while outlining the benefits and challenges.
The report will be officially launched at the Research Data Alliance and global Data and Computing e-Infrastructure challenges event, Rome 11 December 2014.
