legal study on data access

  • Collection of information on access rights and restrictions on marine data

  • Analysis of general legal issues regarding access to data

  • Analysis of regulatory data provided to Commission under Common Fisheries Policy

  • Norway

    • because it has a legal regime that has been influential as far as the development of law in this area is concerned


Findings l.jpg
findings

  • more legal regimes restricting and mandating data flows at the national and EU levels than at international level

  • EU initiatives intended to support creativity, economic development and innovation (…) adversely affect research and cooperation
