  • workshop (July 2008)

  • country reports (May 2008)

  • onsite meetings with data archives and funders (November 2008 and March 2009)

Identified constraints European countries

  • ownership of data: tendency of privatisation of data

  • competition (for funding) and distrust among researchers

  • fear of exploitations and misuse

  • missing willingness (time and effort)

  • low motivation (lack of career rewards for data sharing)

  • lack of documentation of data, quality of meta data

  • shortage of expertise and resources in data management

  • data produced not for wider use (intension of the research project)

  • missing capacities (including financial) and knowledge

  • lack of an appropriate archive service (missing infrastructure)

  • missing awareness of funders and lack of policy initiatives

Roots of data sharing culture: research traditions European countries

  • handling of information and data controlled by state and party

  • no sharing of any kind of information, no free flow of information

  • collaboration between researchers top-down (state and party)

  • no international projects

  • technical hindrances, level of technology

  • small knowledge and experiences in data- related issues

  • selective access to raw data, no data archives



  • institutional reorganisations /no infrastructure

  • dramatic shortcuts of funding for social science research

  • project oriented research dominating, long-term funding rare

  • data as goods privatisation of data, selling data to the west, generating extra income

  • involvement in comparative projects selective

  • mistrust and competition among researchers



/ European countriesOvercoming the barriers

  • data producing projects for wider data use

  • granting applications including a budget to cover data management

  • relationship between research and service activities

  • act as an agent/facilitator for data sharing

  • promoting the benefits and the value to users and funders

  • involvement in data gathering research projects

  • providing expert support for researchers (meta data production, tools, access conditions and control)


data archives

// European countriesOvercoming the barriers



  • development and implementation of a national data sharing policy (including control mechanism)

  • up-front role in requiring deposition of data

  • funding of long-term data producing research projects

  • long-term funding for infrastructure services

  • require their authors to provide links to the data sets upon which their articles are based

  • support a linking system between data and all publications that exist for the data


/// European countriesOvercoming the barriers

  • common policy to stimulate data sharing and permanent access to research data

  • strategic decisions and agreements on European level

  • unified data preservation policies

  • development of an accreditation system

  • support of national data archives and agreements on harmonised actions

  • making data sets citable including citation standards

  • making the publication of data as valued as a paper publication

  • offering training facilities, tools, standards and best practice


To sum up: European countries

/ psychological and

research-traditional barriers

  • researchers

  • research funders

  • publishers

  • national data archives

  • cessda ERI

/// fundingsystem and financial resources

// lack of knowledge and expertise

data sharing

  • //// lack of an appropriate archive service

  • (missing infrastructure)

Yes, we share! European countries
