Connotea Imports 2012-07-31
"[O]n 13 September 2011, the European Commission has launched a further public consultation that aims at gathering views and evidence from stakeholders on the key obstacles to the achievement of a European Research Area (ERA) by 2014, thus creating a single market for knowledge, research and innovation. Section 7 of the questionnaire focuses on knowledge circulation (knowledge transfer and open access) as one of the key issues to tackle. The sub-section on open access refers to the previous consultation on scientific information, and asks questions that are specific to the remit of ERA policy actions (e.g. on researchers' awareness, ownership and copyright rules, VAT, infrastructures, national policies, etc.). Should you wish to contribute, the consultation will be open until 30 November 2011...."
