Fair Is Default, Says Erac

Aurora Brief Reviews No. 02 January 22 2019

January 2019

The European Research Area and Innovation Committee (ERAC) has published a set of recommendations on Open Science and Innovation in the European Research Area.

Among the nine recommendations, most prominent is the notion that FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) must be the default for all research output. Other recommendations address the need to change the way researchers are assessed and rewarded, to incorporate FAIR and open science into the legal Intellectual Property framework, and the crucial importance of more involvement and buy-in of citizens  in science.
